New to the forum, and there's nothing I love more to do when outside than stand in the water and wave a stick around in hopes of a tug
This is a late winter fish on a local river, I'm sure the fish of a lifetime for me on that particular system. I caught him on the swing, and as I stated at the end of the season; my mates and I feel that earlier in the year he was over 20 lbs...Here I'm guessing 18lbs or so.
This is of a summer fish on the dry side. The water was freezing @ 6:30am! If you look closely you'll see he's in full spawn colors with a stunning band of red on his cheek and down his side. Unfortunately the pic just doesn't do this fish justice.
and just for good measure here's me hooked up to a nice Cutthroat trout in the saltwater a week back. It was a nice fall morning on the water, lots of birds, a few seals, and my mate and I. Bummer the run of silvers this year is so dismal.
If any of you guys are ever in the Seattle area and want to wet a line, lmk.
