I had tied some new flies that I wanted to put to the test so I took the boat out and invited Leo again. Tidal predictions looked in our favor so I had high hopes. Ran out to my usual spot this time a little more south and started casting. I started with the spinnerbait fly but had no luck. Leo was on early with a dink and also landed a respectable on as well. With the spinnerbait fly not producing I wanted to try my newest invention but I soon realized I left that fly box in the truck. So I kept the spinnerbait on. Eventually Leo hooked up on a heavy fish that did nothing but putted line. No head shakes, no violent reactions. It eventually broke off his 16 pound tippet. I suspect that it was a ray due to the nature of the fight but we'll never know. I got the stench of the skunk which is all too much becoming a common theme of late.
