A rare wild tiger trout that took a deftly swung partridge and orange like it was meant to be...maybe it was. Study the greased line and you can know what I mean. I thought I heard Jock Scott and A.E.H Woods giving me a golf clap back in the forest.
This is a photo of a land locked salmon I worked very hard to catch. It was the second day of the season, pouring rain with temps in the 40's. It measured approximately 22".
This twenty-inch Rainbow ignored nine different flies before falling for a salmon-colored egg pattern. He was caught in just 6 inches of water. His preference of living and foraging in the shoals is evident through the extensive scarring to his upper and lower jaws.
21 3/4" Rainbow with a healthy 11-inch girth caught on #22 midge dropped below an egg pattern, March 2005.
