    That's a beauty, and this is coming from one who lives where they are native born and bred. What a great first brownie, congratulations!

    With a first fish like that, it is all down-hill from here.:)

    You're doomed. Now you'll expect them all to be that large.

    So true. My first fish caught on a fly was a very large rainbow. It was a very long time until I caught another of that size.

    But we all could be wrong, you know.
