Sharkskin field test on salmon

I spooled up an 8-wt Sharkskin to try on my 890-4 XP for a trip recently taken to Gaspé rivers. I thought I'd fish that as a single hander and my wife would fish her 790-4 XP with a Sage Performance taper, as usual.

Well, at some point we did a change-up on a fish that showed, and once she got the 8-wt Sharkskin, I never did get that outfit back. It certainly added 20 feet to her casts when she needed it, though the noise takes a little getting used to.
