    Seems like Mr. Thyrsites atun is a mad fighter! Glad you got your fish!
    Now if it can take that much backing, what does it do to the handliner's hands

    Those old snoek handliner guys I met at Hout Bay in the early 70's were serious guys. Great Respek! I guess tungsten gloves weren't around then?

    Willie - That young lady has probably caught more fish than you and I put together in her 11 years of life.... she's got fish blood coursing through her veins I can promise you..... I've seen pics of a 40 kilo Bronzie she whipped on 10 kilo in about 20 minutes.... Those Vixen's can fish!!!!

    COngrats to you guys on what looks like an epic trip... cool pics too!
