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!
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!
A perfect brook trout.

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.
This 15" brown trout took a small emergent sparkle pupa on a large Catskill river.
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.)
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.
