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.
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.

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.
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.
