Nice fish.

So do you catch and release?

Been fishing all my life. My Grandpa would spring me from 1st grade and we would go to Crowley for opening day..... good times.

Last year Jan got me hooked on flys, and catch and release... a whole new ballgame to be sure.

And Bluey... fly fishing ain't girly at all..... try it if you dare.

Fly fishing is more fun when you are catching fish,and more fun when you are not.Around here all the best water is fly only.Plus you can make yer own flies.Eventually tying your own variations for specific water.

Tom, hi. I like figuring out what is hatching and using it. But its more fun when the fish are hitting.

Chief.... thats what I figured. LOTS of runoff starting right now, Jan and I will get up north pretty soon. Right now the cragging is pretty good down here with the low temps.... going right now for the 10 am meet up.


Bluey.... lets meet up at Hot Creek, you will change your mind.

I prefer to let large birds of prey kill my trout for me--this feller landed too soon...on the powerline

Atrer the 4th BIG fish I threw all by fly fishing gear in the river and went back to climbing! Was a great day for him, humbling for me. I'm the one that got this guy into fly fishing to begin with!

Even Safeway wouldn't have helped me that day Locker! He actually gave me the fly he was catching these monsters on and I still couldn't hook up. I shoulda punted him in the water! Was happy for him because this was his special place he wanted to take me to, so at least he knew how to fish it and I was a complete NooB GooB!

on the way back from city of rocks a couple years ago we had driven all day and went way out a dirt road to bivi and pulled into a spot in the middle of nowhere. turned the truck off and cracked a cold one and went walking over to these small ponds that just to be crawling with little fish. they may have been placed there for mosquito control, not sure, but in any case they were hitting off the top like crazy, so a threw on the super small mosquito fly (which almost seemed like a joke when i bought it, it was so small) and every cast was a tiny fish (which we threw back of coarse).
it was an excellent opportunity to introduce makayla into the wonderful world of fishing. she was ecstatic!
p.s. caught a couple rainbows at cherry lake last week
this just in

New Zealand ruined trout fishing for me for a few years. My biggest trout ever and the kiwi says, "just a baby, but still a good one."

There's a little lake a few hundred yards off my porch where the rainbows have just about stomped out the cutthroats. Anyways, the only public access is for the desperate who bushwhack their way up a creek. In the last 6 years or so I've been the only one to fish it.

I don't get much in the way of size, but the fish are plentiful, quick to bite, and they sure taste great when smoked!

My recipe is blueberry flavoured papers, and tobacco. That pic comes close.
