Default losing fish

I can tell you what I was using where I was at and all the little details about every big fish ive ever lost . I still have questions in my mind about all of them . I wonder just how big it was ?what did i do wrong ? And most of all why couldnt i just calm down and not try to horse her in .

I have never forgotten any big fish I lost, It just keeps replaying in my mind, things like, why didn't I replace my line like I planned, I knew I should have stripped off more line after that last snag, why didn't i loosen my drag.........

it hurts you know it does but what is even worse is when you hear that someone in that same area caught a big nice fish and it eats at you knowing that was the one that got away
