Just wanted to post up some pictures of the 2018 trip. I may have already posted these pictures but to tell you the truth I can't remember if I did or not.

How the heck do you guys get your fish to sit still for the photos??? More often than not the fish flips just as I'm ready to pull the trigger...do you guys just wear them out completely or something?

Beautiful, big fishies by the way! Well done as usual, Matt.

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Well that happens too where they wriggle free and sometimes fall right back into the river. Remember Jon I am a trout whisperer and I just tell them to behave and they settle down for the photo op.

Great pictures Matt, now if you could just whisper some 70 degree weather, a few caddis and a cold all day long IPA, and you could make me a believer! But in lieu of that the pictures really help.
Thanks, Mike.
