I squeaked into the biggest fish category with this 22 pounder:

But even a tough week on the Miramichi is better than most anything else I can think of.

that is a beauty atlantic! What pattern did you get it on Gary? One of your own?

I'm finally gonna get to swing your flies i bought last year for steelhead in a month or so. Had to cancel my trip last year due to the baby being sick. Still have them in the packages!

Bridget's were on a variation of the General Practioner I tie, developed by a friend, and also my "claretized" version of the Golden Pheasant Spey, both size 8. Mine came on my first cast of the day to a size 10 orange Sneaky.

Hope you have a great trip, Eunan!

Thanks, guys. All I can say is the Miramichi is a wonderful river, home to one of the wonders of the world, the atlantic salmon!

I'm with WT on this one... despite the limited number of fish, looks like you guys got some beauties!!! That 22#er is a fine fish Gary!

Eunan, I know where you're headed, and it's one HECK of a season for it. If I can get a free day in, I'll meet you there since I missed you in Philly.
