on this one i was using an 8' 8wt rod with 30lb mono main line, with an 8' 20lb flouro leader. where the leader met the main line, i had a 12" length of 10lb mono with a #5 split shot. the fly was a really simple crab pattern, tannish gold body with a brown head on a hook.

That's a fantastic catch on the fly. What weight is your rod?
