Posts: 59The extent of my experience with wild trout is unfortunately limited (save a trip to Colorado last year), but I have to say that a full day spent catching wild browns brings on a new appreciation for trout. The coloration exhibited by these fish is amazing, and they fight as hard, if not harder, than stocked trout double their size (holdovers included). Anyway, I really just wanted to share a few pictures with you guys. Later!

It worked out that I couldn't attach pictures to the post, because I've been wanting to put together a Flickr page for a while. It's only a start, but here are some of the pictures from the outing I spoke of above. Enjoy.

I think there's a bug in the photo uploading code. I really don't have time to find it right now.

One thing that should work, which Wbranch hinted at, is that you could upload the images elsewhere (like Imageshack or Flickr) and just use the img forum code tag to insert them here. That's not ideal but it might work for you in until I can find the other bug.
