Great Video! Is it the lighting or is that fish really dark in color. Either way it's a great catch.

I found a few spots last week where the shakers were flying out of the water like that...great to watch! That heat wave really got um going.

Scudly, you need to rearrange your photos vertically. Nice looking fish!

I went ice fishing 26 times without a trout this winter. Below is a pic of my first open water trout of the 2009 season.

Do you like bullfights?

Want to go fly fishing soon?

I'm the king of cheap fly rods.

Well i got'em tom...

was a little rough starting out.. talk about frustration.. was close to just snapping the pole over my leg... lost like 4 flies before i even caught a fish... but after that.. nothing but smooth sailing with a couple more flies lost along the way.. almost came natural after i got the swing of things.. casting under trees/structure with little to no problem

1st trout caught on a fly rod for me..

and then a couple other pics..

troutfly3.jpg

all in all.. caught around 15 or 20 trout

PS: the shakespeare combo i bought felt great.. i've tried fly fishing with a friend's cabela's rod years ago.. and from what i can remember it handled the same.. if not better for me than the cabela's backup my buddy had

itchmesir, you inspired me to get out the fly rod. Second trout ever fly fishing. I lost a bigger one. I wish I could have seen it...

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting 
    • Here is the guy that makes state plaques. have one made for which ever state you took your bird in. http://www.rawescapes.com   He is at the Deer classic every year.
    • welcome to HSO ! 
    • loves the nutty butter suet
    • we will, thx for saving them for us.  
    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
