Here is a comment that sums up our experience...

"It was a miracle that we landed that 10 LBer! I say we, because I couldn't have landed it without your help. The multiple reel screaming runs peeled off ALL the flyline and ALL of the backing. That was just the beginning. Then the line wouldnt reel in because the backing loop was hanging loosely on the arbor. Then the rod came apart in two. Then the fine backing got twisted & knotted around one of the guides. We tried to keep calm while we put the whole mess back together, peice by peice. We were running all over your boat. While all of this is going on, you had to keep powering forward for hundreds of yards to keep up with the fish. The 10 lber seemed to patiently wait (by not making anymore runs, or he was just gone). But finally we realized he was still on! For the second half of the fight, he still had plenty of life left in him, but we still eventually managed to land him. Unfortunately, though, I realized that I had forgotten my camera. Actually, this would have been great ESPN material and a video camera would have been better. Thanks again James, for the "Great Adventure". I shall return again.

P.S. Tell your visitors to bring plenty of backing they'll need it!
