Nice fish...did you get a weight??

OK...here is my big fly, big fish story.

Years ago, in Idaho, I am fishing two rods out of my canoe. One rod has a size 16 nymph, the other rod has a size 2 leech.

Both rods get a strike at the same time. Like a any quick thinking individual I pick up the rod with the leech and set the hook into a 10 inch fish.

The fish hooked to the size 16 nymph comes out of the water and throws the hook.

He looked to be about eight pounds.

I'm thinking 10-11lbs. I didn't weigh it but that would be a close guess I think?
