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.

Nothing really to add to this since everything around here is stocked and not Very Large, but last year Maldaly turned me on to Tenkara, and ever since my nightly dreams are frequently about fly fishing for trout. Both a blessing and a curse.

whoa bob! Nice bone.

I am heading for a week of ankle deep bahamas Dec 2! Andros, where the details of the flies don't really make that much difference it turns out. Most of the bones we will be casting to have never seen a fly before it seems.

BEAUTIFUL bone BG!!!! I just spent a week in Tampa and did two days of pier fishing. Outstanding fishing with 20+ each day and 4 species each day. I caught some decent Spanish Mackerel, but called it good after landing the below Jack. Nothing of any size but constant action, the kinda day any fisherman lives for!

Captn: Nut Tree is better by far than Putah. As for trout nearby, this was my sons PB from 2 weeks ago Lake Berryessa:
