artimus001 posted a topic in Fly Fishing Gear & Techniquesi caught what might be my first fish in years and possibly my first sucker on a fly. i was dead drifting a minnow pattern when i hooked into a average sized sucker. the problem is, the hook was JUST on the outside of the lip. so my question is......was this a fair fish, or did i line it?? it matters all the world to me to find this answer. i don't want to add this to my records if it was a lined fish. any thoughts??? edit: this is at the base of a weir dam. the pool is loaded with carp, suckers and possibly a backdrop steel. i have foul hooked a couple of suckers in this area already. that is why i'm questioning if it was a clean hit. if it was a clean hit, then i've got all the points nailed (place, pattern, presentation).
