    Here is the infamous Doug from Doug's Bugs fame with his first Hawaiian bonefish just under 8 pounds. He lost a huge fish that took his Sharkskin line with it into the coral. When I say took, I mean it's gone forever. Lost. Stolen, Broke off. With some backing.:beer2: And yes he's pushing the fish out, but hey I'm in the damn entertainment business.:D Tight lines boys and swing a fly for me. I miss our steelhead every day. The Coach
    PS Doug is a hell of a fisherman.

    That is awesome.

    Hey Coach, why don't bonefish guys use some super line made out of kevlar for backing?

    Wouldn't that handle the coral a little better?

    Coach, when are you inviting me over for dinner and fishing? Hell, I could not affort the flight anyway, but I can dream. Someday I'll fish the Kenai, Hawaii and maybe Belize, but no time soon with this economy.
