Pictures of Trout, Salmon, and Grayling, Page 2

Boasting is an important part of a proper fisherman's website. Look at all the big trout I've caught! Well, okay. Some of them were caught by friends. And family. And some of them weren't caught at all, but now that I know my way around a camera I can take pictures of them anyway.

This beautiful 20 inch brown put up one heck of a drag-screaming fight. This was one of almost a dozen big trout that hit my flies this evening... and the only one I successfully hooked and landed. That was partly my fault, though. I cannot complain about the action! From the Bois Brule River in Wisconsin.

This nice brown trout was so well-camouflaged at the bottom of the stream that he required a zoom lens, polarizing filter, and digital contrast enhancement to photograph.  My friend Ian and I watched from the bridge as this big trout fed on nymphs for several minutes, and then we took turns trying to catch it.  The selective brown practically laughed us off the river. From Willowemoc Creek in New York.

Here's another beautiful trout, a 17.5 inch stream resident rainbow. He took a grouse & brown soft hackle during a Hendrickson spinner fall over a riffle--probably as a drowned spinner, but maybe as one of the caddis pupae that I suspect were hatching earlier in the day. This fish was in amazing condition, and it leapt clear of the water at least three times. From the Bois Brule River in Wisconsin.

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. From the Chena River in Alaska.

This 15 inch brown trout is the fattest I've ever seen in my life.  It's not full of eggs or anything; it's just in astonishingly good condition.  It took a Hexagenia limbata nymph imitation in the evening before the hatch. From the Couderay River in Wisconsin.

This 20 inch brown trout rose for an Isonychia dry on a hot summer day while no duns were presently hatching.  Sometimes during that prolonged hatch the fish look for the duns even when they're not coming off.  This one fought so hard I expected something several inches larger, and it allowed me to take a photo post-release. From the Namekagon River in Wisconsin.
