Hi Zzippy,
Excellent and thanks for sharing.What a difference it makes having a couple of photos. That's the sort of experience I dreamt might happen one day on a yak!
40 mins!!! what will you be dreaming of tonight?

That is one of the finest fishing tales I have yet read on AN. You must be over the moon, what a result!

I look forward to seeing the picture of it on your lap next time out. :thumbs:

Brilliant report Zzippy, You did well to stay hooked up to whatever is was for so long, just a shame it cut free at the last minute but it proves it can be done. I'm getting my wire traces sorted now for a go for the Tope tomorrow hopefully.
Well Done :)
Stuart.
