Yeah, SC15's are an awesome hook and never had a problem with one until this happened. Love the profile and always have had a high hookup ratio using them. I might have used a #2 on that fly but pretty sure it was a #4. Whatever the size it was a 1x strong. I'm sure the 2x would be more than adequate.The SC-15 is probably my favorite hook for Bonefish. I'm not sure what size you were using or what size the Bonefish was that straightened your hook, but the #2 and #1 have been extremely reliable for me.
It's also possible I had my drag set a touch too tight. Hard to say though. It's not like I was actually expecting to hook anything of size. At least given that this was on a public beach in a residential neighborhood south of Nassau. Hope springs eternal though. In fact the only reason I even picked that fugly crab fly was seeing a couple of bluegill-sized permit when snorkeling earlier that morning. I would've been stoked to catch one of those little guys or even a needle fish.
What I was not prepared for was seeing a 3-4lb bonefish rooting in a foot of wave stirred sand, barely more than a rod length off the beach. I'm amazed I got a cast off in time after staring in disbelief for what seemed like minutes.
Anyway, sorry to digress. That was just one of "those" days that are so clearly etched into memory, it's almost like watching a video just thinking about it.
