    here is the story.got off of work at about 315 and headed to the nearest docks to the house that I have been seeing and catching Several nice snook on live bait with spinning reel. so this day I brought the fly rod with a new fly I had tied the night before. I got in the water and started wading to where I had been seeing the large snook at staying as close to shore as possible trying not to spook any fish.I get to the area where I have been seeing fish and walk up to a dock and I see about 5 over slot snook laying in the shadow I back up slowly and cast under the dock a few times until they spook.I look through the dock to the other side and I see a large fish laying out in the middle of the sunlight, so I walked under the dock and headed towards the fish. there was about 5 large snook chilling with each other so I cast in front of their noses 1 short strip I see a fish come after then 3.fast strips and BAM fish on.she screams to the nearest dock to the deepest part of it.then I was weaving in and out of the dock following the fish trailing right behind it until the fish ran all the way into shore then she would shoot out from under the dock heading north to the next dock and repeated this through the next four docks about 15 minutes later I got her close enough to stick my hands inside her mouth and grab ahold of her. done deal I had just caught the biggest snook I have ever caught on a fly rod!!! I still cant belive it happend...
