Holy crap, Yvonne - that's huge even by Great Lakes standards.

I gotta get my friend Mikey to "weigh in" on this one - he is the most expert steelhead fisherman who ever lived. Mike can catch fish in a toilet. He'll tell you what it weighed.

Nice work on the live release!

shouldn't mess with the fish unless you are really hungry and need to catch dinner.... catching them just to drag them out of the water with a nasty hook in their mouth just to tell them that if i want to kill you and eat you I will but today i will just mess with your head and let you go....

Caught a really nice brookie and a bunch of Goldens about as far east as you can catch them as I understand it.

Nice Bob.

We should just rename the thread "BG Catches Some Big Freakin Fish Thread".

Geez, you go all the way to Alaska, and you can't even come close to Yvonne's fish. ;)

Here's what Mikey said about her beauty 'bow:

"That trout in the pic is safely in the mid teen range, anywhere from 15-18 lb's. If I had to wager a guess I'd say 16."

You got that right Pete...I'll probably never even come close to Yvonne's "fish of a lifetime" rainbow, and I've caught a lot of big rainbows.

The photos make it look small- my guess on that fish was closer to 20 pounds!

Nice fly MB.

Crazy Charlies are a magic fly for bones for sure.

I have found that the best fly for catching bones is the gray and white clouser. They just crush it. Not that those charlies dont put plenty to hand.

If you want to clean that fly up a bit just take a hot poker and run it through the eye and burn off the trimmings around the eye. Makes it a bit easier to lace it up when there is nothing covering the eye hole.

I need a week ankle deep in the bahamas.
