WOW those are some real slabs.

I like to reminisce about a few summer fish in that class (although never three in the same day never mind run!), especially one that opened up an Alec Jackson spey hook after what was most likely the best fight of my angling career. That was a banner day - I even hooked a nice hen on a caddis pattern that I over-mended on a floating line. The fish torpedoed the fly before it even stopped skipping over the water from the over-zealous mend with the Spey rod. My friend Mike Wallach was standing next to me and could not believe his eyes, I think he was about to comment on my crazed mend when >BLAM!<
