Interesting discussion - some old school verses new school going on I think
IMHO when you catch a 40" bass from shore on a fly, it's a milestone. Maybe not a cow... but a heck of a catch especially in October when they look like cows in the belly and pull like sea monsters. My biggest from shore on fly was 46".
I don't know poundages because I don't kill and weigh this class of fish. Curious to hear what others have to say.
