Trout Pics... 2009

68 posts in this topic

since there is no Trout Pic thread.. i figured it was time to have one.. since every Species forum has one except Trout....

Got out this morning... good 5 hrs of fishing or so... wasn't the greatest day.. but there was a huge caddis hatch.. i really need to get on that fly rod purchase..

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.

Itch,

You look like E. Hemingway.

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...
