Pictures of Fishermen (and Women)
Hare are the obligatory pictures of me and people I've fished with, fishing and holding fish. Fly casting makes for really nice pictures if the camera's set up just right. And nothing beats a candid "dropping a fish" moment.
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.
Here my dad's fighting a very nice arctic grayling, and this photo caught it mid-jump at the end of his line. This one eventually shook the hook, but we both caught many more in the same size range.
My girlfriend casts amidst a mix of bugs hatching in mid-July from a Catskill stream.
Exiled dog. I fished for about twenty minutes with her swimming around and around my float tube, then finally we tied her up on shore so I could make a few casts without worrying about catching something way too big & furry.
Here I'm looking through the sampling net for interesting nymphs, some of which ended up on this site.
This colorful brown was my dad's first nice trout on a dry fly. It was also the best of the day, taken with a nice cast after doing some slightly crazy wading through silt and deep water to get into position.
This is my first-ever lake trout, caught on a spinner before we stopped to unpack the fly rods near the beginning of a 4-day float trip. I caught another of about the same size soon thereafter. The coloration is incredible compared to other lakers I've seen -- a much more believable cousin to the brook trout.
This big smallmouth slammed a Dahlberg Diver on the surface.
