yep, elbows are on my ribs so it's just the forearm extension. The lens does the rest. Got some cool pics of the fishes head taken from about 20cm away which make it look pretty mean

Just a scrawny lad with a huge fish!!!! LOL.

Man thats a ripper. Will now have to post my 72cm Chinaman which is a nice meal with no Ciquatera risk over here. Pity  Qland Brad over there cant taste them!!!!

This fish gave me hell and called it for a shark it fought so well an the CI 4000, made it sing and it was a battle trying to keep it off the reef.

Bloody big trout mate.

Absolutely

Best thing about this pic, besides the trout as a capture, is the colours.

Can be a tricky fish to get the colours right in pics I've found, bit like dollies. Nice work all round.

Hazard a guess, but looks like a stella with the spool and front

My fav reel, caught sails, big trout, a 20lb snapper, 15kg GT, barra, dhuies, yellowfin tuna, spanish macks etc etc etc. Maybe I need to do a tribute album to my reel with a romantic song in the background
