I actually marked the hole on the rock that the fly got hooked in so I could mount it this way. Funny thing: I thought I was snagged when I hooked the big fish in this thread...until he started shaking his head. But on this little rock, I thought I had a little trout on until I got the rock up to the boat. My guide and good friend Vin Swayze, owner of Tuckaway Cabins where I stay, didn't know whether to laugh or cry most of the time we were fishing together!

I catch a few rocks every year but never thought of keeping one. That makes a good display for a fly new or used.

Gary-- great going- what a fish!

That fly looks to be getting exactly what it deserves retirement in a place of honor-- too bad you can't put it out to stud.

Uncle Gary

I think you may have just re-invented the pet rock. Beautiful salmon.
