Orn,

Great looking fish! I have a beetle that I would love to try up there with you! Looks like that fish wasn't letting anyone of them get by him.

When you speak of re-capture...Are these fish tagged? We are about to start a study over here where we will be placing tiny transmitters of some sort in a few fish and chasing them down every so many days and marking their location with GPS...Should be interesting.

Thanks for the report...That one Brown is a Hog! :)

Orn,

I went back and watched your vid...Wonderful! I am envious of a lot of things I saw but especially the fact that there's nothing to hassle with your backcast! :) Somewhere in that thread you responded to someones note by saying that you needed to work on your casting...If you come fish the Au Sable with me we can take care of that...The tag alders are so thick along the banks and behind you that your casting should pick up rather quickly or you'll lose a hundred flies a day. :)

Your casting looked fine and you were getting it done!

You said you are tagging birds as well...Are you keeping records?

Interesting landscape there...

Orm,

Thank you for the windown into your world. A number of us are still saving our pennies for a plane ticket. :) All kidding aside, you do live in a flyfisher's paradise.

Good to see you are on the water again. Ahhhhhhh......

I've done similar things with largemouth bass here -"fingerprinting" them by markings. And posted the images too.

Now there's a sentiment that many of us can relate to. Best of luck, Orm. Just don't let one of them bite a leg off.

Great pictures! Very few destinations can make me wish I could hop on the first plane out of Alaska to go fishing, but I think you're in one there.

Orn,

As usual just gorgeous pictures of big browns and now atlantic salmon. Do you use traditional hairwing salmon flies and fish them across and down on a floating line? Do you see them come up on the swing and boil on the fly before they take the fly?

I hope you (and your fish) get rain and relief soon.

I've never checked this thread before. Holy cow those are amazing images. What a great life you're living.
...but fishermen I have noticed, they don't care if I'm rich or poor, wearing robes or waders, all they care about is the fish, the river, and the game we play. For fishermen, the only virtues are patience, tolerance, and humility. I like this.
