You're one of those, huh?
I bet you bought a brand new super expensive toilet seat, a brand new $500 rod, and one of those T-radars...where's the sport? Sigh... just takes the fun out of everything by trying to buy your way to the top... er... bottom...
Lol, f you only knew. Its a drift rod, nice for the technique, but cheap...Shimano convergence, $59.99.
The fish, A Chinook salmon, is one of the strongest fighting fish pound for pound in the world with immense stamina as well as size.
Yet the rod is 10' 6" ultra-light designed for drifting. This makes for long drawn out battles that test everything (hey, they test the big rods and make long runs)...its a friggin' blast my friend, something every fisherman on the planet should have on his or her bucket list.
All fish I ever photograph, were subsequently released Same for the spiders.
btw, you should see that scheoidtei....full on adult colors like you described in my last pic.
