Hi all! I am a native of the syracuse area now living, and fishing, in minnesota. i think its so cool that there is a new york forum on this site! and that people from new york have found it and used it! anyway, i wanted to share some pics of my uncle and cousins recent catches there in northern new york. they are great fly guys, and someday i will learn!

Hey FishOn, I assume those are Salmon River fish? Nothing better than fresh steel on a flyrod. We get up there a fair amount and love it! That second picture looks like the Barrel hole?

It is indeed the salmon river. I havent been there myself, but i sure hope to someday. alot of people here in minnesota who have never been to northern new york, would never believe that these fish came from there! you know, the entire state of new york is buildings and concrete!! hehe!

Yep, thats deffinatly the "barrel hole". A tough spot to fish as its packed with steelies and usually 2-3 boats and 2-3 dozen yahoos. The loweer end of the "schoolhouse" pool in the far backround is a sweet spot...

Heres a few SR chromers on the flyrod...

Nice fish you got there! Thanks for sharing your pics! I don't fish the river , myself, all trolling on the lake for me,But it is one of my idle "threats" to my wife, when she's gut something to say like"your going deer hunting , again?" "you already shot 5!" My response is "Don't MAKE me start steelhead fishing ! or ELK hunting!"

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
