Pictures of Fishermen (and Women)
Hare are the obligatory pictures of me and people I've fished with, fishing and holding fish. Fly casting makes for really nice pictures if the camera's set up just right. And nothing beats a candid "dropping a fish" moment.
My friend Ian throws a fine cast in a section of river that's open year-round. From the bridge, we spotted a very nice brown nymphing, but neither of us could get it to take.
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.
Here I'm looking through the sampling net for interesting nymphs, some of which ended up on this site.
My girlfriend casts amidst a mix of bugs hatching in mid-July from a Catskill stream.
Exiled dog. I fished for about twenty minutes with her swimming around and around my float tube, then finally we tied her up on shore so I could make a few casts without worrying about catching something way too big & furry.
This colorful brown was my dad's first nice trout on a dry fly. It was also the best of the day, taken with a nice cast after doing some slightly crazy wading through silt and deep water to get into position.
My dad finally broke his long, uncanny fishless streak with this nearly 2 inch long common shiner caught on a size 22 Serratella
imitation during a Trico spinner fall. Heh heh.
With my friend Brad Bohen
at the oars of the drift boat, Don the Pond Monster
and I tempted several very nice smallmouths and muskies on a productive evening float.
Here's a panorama of the junction of the North Fork of the Chena River and Middle Fork of the Chena River, where we my dad and I spent some time fishing for Arctic grayling on this float trip.
I strike at a hit in an inviting piece of dry fly water.
