As I recall, you Netted a very nice gain from your trade. I have many pictures of very nice fish I've netted and released over the years. I have very few memories now of the big ones that cut my line or somehow were "pre-released".
But I do have one memory from 40 years ago that sticks with me because of the circumstances. I was fishing with a young pastor from my church at a remote northern lake. I had about a 40-45" northern along side the boat but not nearly ready to net. The young pastor tried to pin it against the side of the boat with a 2 ft net while I was yelling ITS NOT READY YET. Needless to say the fish exploded away easily snapping my line. He turned to me and said "Grampa you can swear if you want". I just laughed and said this will be a great story to remember.
You will have many more chances to net a Ziop big one in some way that this memory of yours will fade away.:-)
