Nice fish.  Did she jump on you?

Thanks!  No jumps, she made a few moves for fast water and I had to wade downstream a bit, but then netted her fairly quickly given her size.  When I saw how big she was in the water...I think I might have jumped though :)

Thanks to all for advice.  I rigged a team of #20s through 3x.  It can be done!  And hiked down this afternoon to give it a shot keeping in mind all of the above.  Now I don't usually tape fish, let alone take them out of the water, and I hate this photo, but i had to know.  I revived her in the water after a brief fight, lay her down on the bank and then held her until she swam away.  I believe this is a legitimate 25" fish if I stretched the tape.  Taken on #20 black beauty variation with flash.  My take on dorsey's top secret midge.  With side pressure, tip in the water, and the heavier flouro I feel like we did this together.  Thanks SOL for helping me land my PB bow.  Im on cloud nine.  I can't believe how this all came together!  I'm celebrating tonight!
