    That's One Big Fish I grab the foregrip first as I slide in next to Sam and the fully take over the rod. The weight of these kite rods and sheer size of the larger reel make a cumbersome combo and I'm glad I don't have to flyline a sardine on this thing all day but I get a good grip and hold...
