What do you mean 'not so good quality'? Maybe you're just naturally very blurry.

Man,
These fish could become an addiction, that big pull is definitely addictive. I would go for a 10wt rod...... and a top notch drag, alot of times (where I have fished) they will head for the timber and you have to put the brakes on them. The other factor is the big flies and heavy sinking lines (which shoot so nicely!). The few times I have had the pleasure of doing this it has been from a boat so the backing wasn't as important, though they sometimes head up or down river and get into it in a hurry. Man are they powerful fish! You might want to check out trophyfishingtn.com as well. Mike Anderson and his friends are pretty eaten up with it over in middle TN. No more so than Seagull and Flat!
I'll post a few pics as well, but will have to load them to photo bucket.
Anyway might have to try it out there where you are some evening. I wonder it a spey rod might be good for the bank fisherman?
Good luck with it,
John

Man these things are addictive, and in current with lots of downed trees you have to get right with them. If I can do it though, most anyone can, though my shoulder is pretty sore and crackly the day after slinging that 10wt!

Even the smaller fish were beasts!

I have 20 lb flourocarbon broken twice, just by the pull....... well maybe they made it to the tree and knicked the line! That was the death grip on the line, not letting the drag do the work!

What a rush, makes my shoulder hurt a little just looking at the pics!
