Hi Dan,

Thanks! I was pretty lucky to connect with such a fine fish.

Yes, it was taken on the Sea Level Stealth 7-weight with the Sea Level Tempest II reel. The line was a Rio Outbound Custom Cut T-14 - 28-foot head; leader strait 15# BBG 8-feet long. I just love those SL Stealth rods in 7, 8 and 9-weight but I don't think Ray is ever going to put them into production. Too bad...

Here's a couple of photos of the fly but it's a bit beat up. It was tied with H2o Flash `N Slinky syn hair with a bunch of natural gray bucktail over the top, topped off with UV purple Crystal Flash.

Colors: white belly, pink center and gray top. UV pearl Flashabou for flashtail. Hook 3/0 Targus jig hook.
