    Yup, he just used the pole to get the bait out. Hand lined him from there. Using a fishing rod gives the fish a lever to use against you. Nice for giving a smaller fish a fighting chance. The only thing a rod is good for is to dampen shock and not break your line (well not quite...). Once he got the head was out of the water next to the boat it was over. Very impressive though. I'd need to change my shorts. The long rodder looked like he was getting ready to bail when that fish started to come over the gunwale! ;D One day I'd like to do some blue water fly rodding. Thanks for the vid.
