Odd Pictures from Trout Streams, Page 2
These odds and ends didn't fit into any of my other categories. Sometimes a really weird (or slightly twisted) picture opportunity presents itself and it's hard to can't pass it up. I think the oddest picture so far was the crayfish that grabbed my nymph and held on long enough for the camera.
My frequent fishing partner Brad Bohen
spotted and photographed this beer poster in Brule, WI. He's got a good eye for trout, and this one looked familiar. Sure enough, it's a 15 incher I caught on the Beaverkill in the Catskills in August 2004 on an emergent sparkle pupa. I posted it here.

I don't know if I skunked this day or not. I didn't catch any trout, but, um... does this count? (He grabbed onto my Pink Squirrel nymph as it drifted along the bottom and held on for dear life with his pincers.)
Helpful husky. Taiga wanted to spend the whole evening swimming in tight circles around me.
