Last trip out I tried a newish spot on a favorite local creek. I know there are nice browns in there, but I didn't catch a single one. I don't think the trout had a chance - I was pretty much getting one of these guys on the line on every single cast no matter what fly or technique I tried. I didn't have my "big streamer" box on me, maybe I'll try that next time.

On the one hand, no trout. On the other hand, these are pretty fish and I don't mind catching them. Plus, I suppose it can't be a bad thing to quit and go home because you're catching TOO MANY fish, even if it's not the fish you were after.

First fish landed on my 13' Beulah Classic Spey and Allen Kraken #4 last night. I think my "bucket mouth" may be bigger.

I think we should turn this into a sticky for our "Biggest Trophy" thread.
This one was so big the camera couldn't focus on it correctly.

You guys got nothing on me. Look at my trophy. And yes, it did take the flashback pheasant tail nymph.

That's funny, I caught a tiny one just like that 3 days ago on a Palomino Midge. Thought I was dragging in a bit of moss.
