I cast 15 meters from the boat, a good 10 meters in front of the school. The fly sinks and once the fish are about 3 meters from it, I start a descrete stripping. I do not see the take but I feel it.
Strike ! What happens in the next secods is pure madness. The reel start spinning at the speed of light. No way to limit the output of backing that is rocketing into the blue water. The run slows down after about 70 meter.
I reel back some tens of meter of backing, before the 2nd run takes it out again. This time he does not go that far but the fury is as intense as the first flight. There 2 more runs in a diminuendo before I get to see the fish.
