Yep only way to describe it.
We were in the middle of a salmon frenzy (with confirmed sighting of kings in the mix) when this guy took my lure.
Instantly knew it wasn't a salmon cause it was taking drag that the salmon couldnt do.

Thanks chris.
i didn't catch that ep on fly (Or anything for that matter) . So that still needs to be ticked off soon. Certainly didn't help not knowing how to cast a fly rod though :rofl:
