A small brown trout jumps at the end of my line. Photo by Sandy Neuswanger. Yes, the most popular photo on this website was taken by my mom when I handed off the camera to play this fish!
This beautiful 20 inch brown trout took a dry fly placed very tight against some overhanging alders. I was proud of that cast even before the trout smashed my fly. This brown is so vibrantly colored that as I caught glimpses during the fight I began to wonder if it was not a brown, but a monster brook trout. It turned out to be a very bright red/gold brown trout. The picture, fine as it is, doesn't do the trout justice.
A small brown trout returns to the clear water from which he sipped my tiny ant imitation on a hot August afternoon.
This beautiful, remote stretch of one of the lesser-known large Catskill trout streams produced my only trout in two days of slow fishing, a 9 inch brown. Better than nothing! In fact, even "nothing" in this setting is really something!
My friend Ian throws a fine cast in a section of river that's open year-round. From the bridge, we spotted a very nice brown nymphing, but neither of us could get it to take.
I captured this sunset over one of my favorite holes.
This fish almost got me into the coveted "20/20 club." It's a 20 inch brown caught on sulphur-flavored Galloup's Cripple tied on a size 18 3X-fine dry fly hook. It's also my biggest fish to date from the Catskills.

My girlfriend took this picture with my camera, and I'm not sure how she did it. Instead of being crisp and sharp it has a surreal look like an oil painting, perfect for the scene. (Edit in 2011: Now that I see this picture so high up on the popular list, perhaps I should point out that she's now my wife, so there's no confusion.)
