John, here are a few Delaware River trout, caught with Bruce Miller, who guides out of the Delaware River Club. Al Caucci is out of the business there, though he still runs annual trips in Montana.

Louis, excellent! Thank you!

I never fished the Delaware from a driftboat, we always walked and waded the river. Of course back in the early 1980's I am sure it was probably less crowded and easier access than now.

Thanks, Mike. I understand you have some beautiful country up your way. Hope to get up there someday.

John, I waded the West Branch last year. Got beat up by a couple of impossible fish, caught a few smaller ones, then the next day had some great action a bit farther downstream. It can certainly get busy these days, and some of the fish get almost impossible to catch. They see too many flies. Some of the guides tell me they'll just move on when this happens.

Nice Louis! Well done!

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