Was a challenge

 Got this one Sunday out on the spoil bank. Certainly wasn't an easy fight . Only using an outfit realy only suitable for fish up to maybe 5kg and running 15lb line , this one just nearly got me down to my backing line peeling off nearly 100mtrs of braid. Got it turn ed D but it still wanted to go for the open ocean . After about half hour after gaining and loosing line I finally got it on the waters edge. Quick pic and it swam off slowly. 

The length of pipe is 500mm so I estimated it at around 1500 long . It certainly tested my line and knots .
