Timmc,
Were you fishing from a canoe or is that a float tube? You son should be very proud of that monster!

They were mostly hatchery fish, out of 9 steelhead (two trips), 3 were wild, the remainder were hatchery. This recent trip, they were taking red copper johns, though I did get one on the swing with a silver hilton. Two weeks ago, the 2 wild fish I stuck were taken on a posse bugger, essentially a suped up hairs ear. The others took golden stones. It has been a great season so far.

We were trolling with flies paddling an old Walden plastic kayak. Never been a canoe person.

Yes, my son was very proud and in fact went back looking for that same lake this year- Landed nothing like this one.
Thanks

Permit are so cool looking, great job! As it has been puking snow all day long, tropical fishing is looking mighty nice and inviting.

I've got a picture of a big brown someplace - either 16 1/2 or 15 1/2 pounds, can't remember. Off the Pickering Nuclear Station - Whitby, Ontario east of Toronto on Lake Ontario - in January or February back in the 80's probably.

Man, it was so easy to catch those things at night. Troll along a body bait under the lights.

No viable launch ramp - car toppers only portaged in across the beach. Fishin' in the tin can at temps of minus 15 or 20 C in the dark. Ice coating the boat and rod guides.

Lakers in the day time, fish the thermal plume, where the warm water - 10C or so - from the reactors met the cold Lake Ontario water. Killer lure was a dark green/silver AC Shiner.

Anyone here know what the AC stands for?? Free beer on the bridge for the correct answer.

Man, gotta find that photo...

Browns in Lake Ontario - dumbest ass trout ever. But native browns in the stream - smartest bastards you ever tried to catch. [never caught one, actually]

Nice permit felio, and nice fly. Looks like a merkin style crab pattern? What did you use to tie the body?

From the Yucatan?

Feelio - where did you get that permit? Had a bunch of good shots off Honduras last March but no takers.
