Pending World Record on Fly Rod for 6# Tippet
« on: May 30, 2014, 06:35:28 PM »
Nice Lake Whitefish on Fly

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well today was a sad day as I watch the Ugly Ducking get flown away with a Bald Eagle and Momma Goose just a screaming following down the lake..

but for me I was a great day and when I found them hunting its was short a sweet as it took 1/2 hr too get a couple ..got one small Pike that still has spawning scars and I released it

Just got to get down to the IGA and get it weight in

could be a Fly Rod World Record on 6# tippet pending

Also I weighted it in a 4#4.8oz so it is a pending Fly Rod Tippet 6# World Record at the FWFH

Very cool. I still haven't mastered catching those lake whites in open water.

Nice accomplishment.
What’s the record for one person with the most records you must be getting close?

Right on!  Whenever I drive by Talbot now, I think: Is that Ol' Speckle out there again?   ;)
