Both fish caught using a Meiser MKX Spey Rods (S2H130910MKX-4) Dave emailed this comment: "Thank Goodness! lots of jumping and pulling. Had'er bent into the cork. That's a powerful rod but Im amazed at how easy the tip bends. Really nice for keeping tension on a fish. I'm very happy with this rod!"

I met Dr. Michael Kenyon, last summer on the Skeena River, BC. I actually first met his friend who said that his buddy had caught a 48 inch Steelhead on the river last summer. I didn't believe him, then I met Dr. Mike, and he showed me photos on his phone on the river's bank. I believe him NOW! (Super Huge - possible World Record)

Dave Robinson - fishing the Sauk River, WA on it's re-opening of the Skagit/Sauk wild fish restoration. When Dave switched to Neo Methow Skagit Leech he hooked into this fish. Even though it was a LDR (long distance release), the tug is the drug and the game was on.
