Default alright! fishin' photos from my lunch break!

went back to the same stretch on the blackfoot.... this time, i didn't mess around with dries and nymphs..... swapped my spool for sinking line and tied on a big brown and yellow conehead rubber-leg bugger....

a couple scenic shots first...
this area is not as scenic as the upper blackfoot.... if i had an 8 hour lunch break, i could really share some breathtaking shots of the upper river:

another shot:

the hole:

first catch... a PIKEMINNOW! a big one too. probably 19 inches!:

second catch.... a 13 incher maybe:

and last catch... i'm guessing 16 inches:

not bad for 45 minutes. i was hoping to hook a 24 inch brown... maybe on another lunch break.

You've got a lot more fortitude than I do...I'd never be able to go back to work after that 45 minutes!

A large order of bent rods with a side of tight lines for lunch, sound perfect!

Why be upset with the pikeminnow? I'll take a 19" fish of any variety.

Thumbs up Re: alright! fishin' photos from my lunch break!

Choked on my 'cup 'o taa;' That took me waaaaay back in the day (Seattle area) where I'd be out (in a three piece suit) doing 'construction draws' for our builders.

Trunk of car had the gear and knee high boots ...... long lunch on the Green or Sky.
