    32" x 20" is 16.5 lbs according to the online weight estimator that I used. The leader was 6' of 15 lb Maxima Ultragreen.

    Tim, in that case I will be very uncareful for the next few weeks!

    Awesome fish Bill. Makes me glad I'm following the guru's advice about 15lb leaders. Was that on a 6wt or 7wt?

    I've been fishing 12lb, maybe I need to step it up! Great looking fish there Bill. Don't you fish an 8wt?

    Josh, I usually fish an 8 weight starting in mid-July but I dropped some coin this Spring and picked up a 9'6" 7 weight Sage One...it is a super sweet rod and even with the Nook I felt it had the power to maintain good pressure on the fish. I'm glad I made the invesment.

    Bill,
    I'm glad you got your King when you did. Looks like chinook retention will be closing in MA 9 starting Monday.
    That makes it only a 19 day chinook season this year in MA 9.
