Default Some fish pics from my trip this past weekend

I had a great time fishing a small creek for wild trout this past weekend. Here are some pics I took of some of the willing residence. All of the fish were caught on different dries using my 000WT. It was a very productive trip; I can’t even begin to guess how many fish were landed.

Awesome!

I'd like to hear more about the fly rod and a pic if you have it. I'm looking for a small 1 or 2 wt that is not that expensive. I'm thinking I'll have to build one.

Beautiful fish. Where (not exactly) were you?

Thanks!

That fly rod is the Sage 000710-3 TXL it is a medium-fast 7’ 10” rod. I have mine matched with a Galvan OB-1 reel with Sage quiet taper II DT000F line, the line weighs 32 grains. It is an absolute wonderful rod on the smaller backcountry creeks I prefer to fish. It is nice because even real small fish feel like big fish on this rod. In addition the rod will handle lager fish. Personally when I fish it for larger fish I will put them on the reel when fighting them. To date the largest fish I have landed with it was a 20” brown trout. I believe I paid around 540 for the rod.

Another rod I fish a lot is my Orvis Superfine 1WT. Prior to purchasing my TXL this was my go to rod. This rod I have matched with a CFO I reel and Orvis WF1F line. Personally I like how the feel of how this rod casts a little better than the TXL. However I like the fish on feel of the TXL slightly more. So basically it is a tossup for me as to which rod I like better. I don’t know exactly what I paid for this rod as my wife got it for me for a Father’s Day present.

As far as where I was at I will say this. I was on a small backcountry creek in Idaho. Here are a couple pics of my TXL for ya.

Beautiful fish. I went down to a 1wt last month. I've never had so much fun with a flyrod before.
Thanks for sharing. It's guys like you that use ultra light tackle to have fun fishing small creeks that got me started.
Now, I'll have to check out the OOO's!

Thanks guys! I actually took a bunch more pictures I believe that I had over 40 when I looked at the SD card. I did not want to do a massive photo dump so I chose a few to post.


@FlyRichardFly: Yes the 000wt is a wonderful rod I can't say enough about it. If you enjoy small creek fishing you will enjoy the rod. It was funny when I got the rod the fly shop owner suggested that I not fill out the warranty card in case I wanted to sell it later. My reply was that I would never sell the rod so I filled out the card


Here are a few more pics: On the way home we decided to check out a world famous creek. Plus we wanted to get out of the car and stretch a bit. We did not fish here due to the fact it was so late and after a full day of fishing we wanted to get home. Besides it isn’t like I couldn’t go back whenever I wanted to
