Top fish John. Would have torn some line off of a Sol 2000. Great result.

those snapbacks are really doing the trick atm especially that pink colour. With all the great captures on the yak and lanbased it almost makes a pinky off the boat look like nothing too special. Welldone mate!

Good capture

I am impressed. From a Yak, light rod and a 2000 reel (even though its a Sol). Awesome stuff.

I suspect you had a little run around, pull around from that snap. Snap on snap has a ring to it aswell. Did it go back? Snap back on snapback. LOL.

Maybe you should shade out some of the water in the pic as others may recognise the location.  Wink
