Here's my entry:

After hiking in 20 miles to a pond I determined through various calculations and sunspot phases to be a candidate for big brookies, I hooked this one on a size 24 spinner floating perfectly in the surface film. Using a silk line and antique gut leader made landing this beauty especially challenging. As I tangled at the last minute, I handed the fish to Upstate Dave to hold while I photographed it. He is not the type of guy to try to steal credit for someone else's catch unlike a certain other forum member.
