I ve seen some Dean fish, particularly a big fresh hen, do ariel acrobatics that are spectacular. ... Like run cartwheeling upstream for close to a 75 yards and then cartwheel all the way back down the river past the original hook up point , while I am literally "whale roping" line as fast as I can, and then have the hen end up the same distance below me in a matter of what seemed like seconds. Its quite exhilarating to be out there by yourself and land one of those rockets. On the other hand, I ve seen TDF fish give jumps and fights that took my breath away and local large trout on 6x do the same thing…. it ' s all good.
