    Thumbs up X-Large

    Earlier this year I jammed a new personal best Largemouth Yellow and yes I had some water running…again!

    Girth: 54cm
    Fork: 84cm
    Total: 93cm
    Weight: 21.5lbs / 9.77kg

    Compared to last year’s 20lber the girth was 1cm fatter and the fork 1cm longer. The total length was the same.

    Different experience this time around, not as frantic as last time i.e. if I had blinked I would’ve missed the take my line literally moved 5cm. The actual fight was nice she fought hard and kept low on the bottom. It felt very baberish hehe meaning low and slow and very heavy.

    What a beast!!!!

    Now for a 10kg job and then on to a 30lber! O gatta hier kom ‘n ding….

    Flyfishing for yellows...the most fun a man can have, with his clothes on, while standing up, holding a bar of gold in your hands.
