Default Tickled ... brown?

So I listen to the Orvis podcasts and decided to send them a suggestion about what I'd like to hear on the podcast. There's a lot about getting the fish to take your fly, as we are all used to, but very little about fighting/playing fish. Since I've been losing a lot of fish lately, and I've been blaming myself for fighting them incorrectly, I suggested a podcast segment on playing/fighting fish and at the end I included the photo of the big brown I caught the other day. I got an email back today saying the suggestion was passed to Tom Rosenbauer and that they really liked the picture as well!

Picture of the Day: Beginner's Luck?

Needless to say, I was pretty excited , but I don't know how I feel about the title

EDIT: I forgot to add an important part: this was caught on one of Eunan/S Fontinalis' flies, so thank you very much Eunan!

That's way to cool! Congrats.

As for the title, catch another one and send it to them and say, "One is luck, two is skill."

I notice Greg senyo, the designer of the fly I tied made a comment. And mike schmidt too, two of the biggest steelhead alley guides around! Mike ties great flies too , check out his site at anglerschoiceflies.com

oh, and I got the ellicot specials today, can't wait to give them a rattle this weekend

No autographs to fans of the War Eagle, go Gators You guys can have our scraps, even if they turn into Heisman Trophy winners.... just kidding there, as long as its in the SEC I'm cool with it, since I live in other conference territory now!

Eunan, I noticed that comment from Greg Senyo, I want to send him an email and mention that you tied the fly that I caught it on, one of his wiggle-stones. I hope you do equally well as I, if not better, using those Ellicott Specials this weekend!

Dan, when I saw the title I wanted to send photos of all of the 20+" browns I've caught lately, but then I realized that 1) since I've only been fly fishing for 2 months I guess I AM still a beginner, and 2) I'm too stoked that my photo is up there to get cocky just yet. You can bet, however, that they will be getting an email the next time I catch a big fish questioning the nature of the inspiration behind the catch

That is a nice fish and a nice pic, nothing to be ashamed of at all, beginner or not. Besides, I always heard that luck is what happens when preparation meets oportuniy.

Doesn't hurt to be in that location when the browns are running.

Always wanted to try it.

FANTASTIC fish and very well colored as well. I like the idea of a fish fighting popcast as well it is expecially important when dealing with fresh/salt water heavyweights like musky, stripers, big bass, and tarpon. Not to mention some of the bruiser browns that i like to chase.
