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.
Lena wading across the riffle to catch up with me.
I try to find a brookie in a beautiful, clear pool, but with no luck.
Lena sneaks up on some alleged brook trout which gave no sign of their presence to either one of us.
This is my biggest and certainly best stream-resident rainbow to date, a wild 19-incher pulled from a Class III-IV rapids. It's also the first fish ever to take me into my backing.

Lena fishes a brookie hole.
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.
