Spoken by a true bait slinger.

When I get this cast off I can start casting again.

Damn nice fish. Hopefully will hook up with a Lahontan this season.

bluey- I've got a sweet arsenal of spinning ear for every situation. sometimes the wind blows and sometimes it's more fun (ie carp, bass and pike). i'm an equal opportunity fisherman.

but the fly rod is the real art. i could change yer mind.

it's trad v sport, and since you're a sport climber I guess spinner is for you!

the river that that slob came out of has about 5000 head of cattle upstream.......not such good eatin', but the fish get huge in that muck.

bluey- the best thing about a trout is that he can't impale your hand with his fins! soft and slimy in every way.

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.

Nice looking fish on this page...

I absolutely LOVE to fish...

ALWAYS (still holds true today) said that when my climbing days are over, that I'd like to get myself a nice day sailer and travel the intercoastal waterways on the east coast and fish my last days away...

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