    i trust dave. if he called out 20" i'll believe him. but it dont matter either way. cause when im done chasing steelhead i'll be locking down the top 5 slots in short order! :clown:

    you guys better quit whining and start casting. cause once the rivers close 5th place will be a 2 footer!

    Sean I heard Christian and those guys charge you 50 bucks a shot to pose with their fish. I'll let you hold one of mine for half that. :clown:

    When steel season ends you know where I will be, over on the dry side chasing some dirty browns. Cant wait for hot weather, fishing all day partying at night and waking up to do it all over again, god I love life.

    It may take me until the end of the year, but I feel pretty good about my odds. Quantity may be an issue with me, but not so much with quality.

    Funny thing is, because Ford_Fenders finally is no longer gainfully unemployed, I feel I have as good a shot as anyone.

    The throwdown is ON!

    So this thread started back three weeks ago, and no one (except myself) has posted a picture of a brown yet? And all that belly-aching? Sheee-ite! What a bunch of meow-meows! If I knew then what I know now, I would have knocked a couple of inches of that Pass Lake brown I caught and kept it in the running. I know I'm going to jinx myself, but I'm gonna say it right now: I'm going fishing tomorrow.

    As the saying goes, put a blind hog under an oak tree and sooner or later he'll find an acorn! A big thanks to Tim (Ford_Fenders) for documenting the event!

    Well I've only ever fished waters with brown trout for about 6 hours in my life, but I think I got pass lake figured out. I just didn't have the right flies last time ;)

    As for making it down to America, the traveling shitshow will take place the third week of march and then september, october and november. Its gonna be a good summer, I can feel it.

    Good to see people stepping up. The fish gods could have been kinder. Last outing produced a strong LDR, either the Loch Ness Monster of browns or an otter ripped me off, and a thick, spotted 15" brown in the 11th hour.

    Better luck next time. At least the trout were where I thought they were.
