Best fish on fly by far!

Caught this beauty in a canal near the river in north fort myers, she nevered jumped which was suprising, i got a little lucky that the fly was in the corner of her mouth, I only had 17lb fluoro tippet on. I've been catching small snook in the 12-15 inch range so thats reason for the smaller tippet. A pretty good fish for an 8wt., she ran under the mangroves a couple of times and I had to get "down and dirty" on her. My hands were shaking so bad when I gabbed her. Not sure what she weight or measured :( , below is a pic the fly she hit, i'm not good with remembering the names of flies but i think its a black/purple deceiver :shrug
