Pictures of Fish

Believe it or not, sometimes I submit to the weather's mandate that I fish for lesser species than the noble salmonids. The temperatures soar in August and the trout take refuge in hidden spring seeps and the unfortunate hours preceding dawn. I yield to nature's demands, attaching beastly things to my tippet and lobbing them at the likes of muskellunge and smallmouth bass. Oh, life is hard!

One strange evening on a classic trout stream had brought me nothing but fallfish (albeit nice ones) when I cast outside the main current flow at a fish rising to little flying ants in a back eddy.  It took and, much to my surprise, it was a sunfish I'd never seen before!  Turns out it's a red-breasted sunfish, a common species in the East. From the Beaverkill River in New York.

I was looking for king salmon, but this fallfish was the biggest fish I found.  Maybe if I had photoshopped it enough I'd have something to brag about...  From Sandy Creek in New York.

I was disappointed at first to find that all the risers one evening were fallfish, but I had fun once I adapted my expectations and started catching fallfish over 15 inches like this one. From the Beaverkill River in New York.

There are few sights more promising than a large pool on the Beaverkill full of steady rises to a parade of fallen flying ants.  It was a bit of a let-down, however, to learn that most of the rises were from fallfish like this one, and there didn't seem to be a trout in sight. From the Beaverkill River in New York.

Maybe I should have edited my fingers out of the picture to make this smallmouth look a little bit bigger.  I would have to pretend that the size 18 ant in its mouth was, I don't know -- a jointed Rapala? From the Beaverkill River in New York.
