I couldn't find the string this morning to enter. But Damn old doogue was awful close even though he's one # over I'd give it to him.

Whoa, I guessed 1952 and 52 pounds. Saltron guessed 1952 and 23.6363 kg * 2.2 lb/kg = 51.99986 lbs. So, significant figures included, SaltRon wins. That was close...

Wow...I hadn't seen the posts on the second page when I wrote this. If we are splitting hairs a kilogram = 2.2046226 lb so 23.6363 kg * 2.2046226 lb/kg = 52.10912 lbs.

Who knows...if I am the winner then I donate my proceeds to the Forum. The contest really should not come down to significant figures.

Awesome fish though...

I vote that its a tie, since saltRon probably divided 52 by 2.2lbs/kg thus giving 23.63...kg. So, maybe time responded to the question as the tie breaker?

Nick -

That sounds like a sound suggestion, therefore SaltRon takes the Old School award for one fly line of choice up to a $50 value!

Round of virtual applause for out friend from British Columbia!

Ron - email me with your snail mail and line choice, CONGRATS!

Special thanks to Capt.Konrad Gesner of the Massachusetts south shore for the use of the "family heirloom" photo.

Mike - close one, as usual I admire your sportsmanship in the hair-splitting results. I'd love if you and your clan could join me for a fall sortie out on Nauset this fall before the snow flies.

Juro,

I would love to do an oversand trip as the season fades. The last time that you took me out there was the highlight of the season for me - in terms of the overall appeal of one outing. The blitz action that my brother, Roop and I enjoyed a few weeks back certainly wins out on the adrenaline front but if you integrate the curve of pure satisfaction then that day on Nauset wins out.

I am not sure when you are heading oversand but keep us in mind when you are heading out on Nauset in the late September and early October time frame. I appreciate the offer.

-Mike
