    Man do I love fall. Had a great couple of days skating dries and then following them through with nymphs. 11 fish hooked in (2) half-days of fishing. Brings my total to 27 for the month. Got a beautiful 9-10# bright hatchery hen this morning on a wally waker. Had to show this one off.

    Best part was that I had the water all to myself. Saw a couple other rigs driving around the river and only one boat (which surprised me, since I rarely see drift boats on this particular river), but had time to relax and be thorough through the holes and runs, and it paid off.

    Darn, it is telling me my picture file is too big to upload. Will have to try and figure out how to compress it and then post it...

    Sorry, can't get this picture up. Have to remember to shoot one at lower resolution next time.

    Anybody know how to compress a high-res image without using special software?

    Using a digital????????????????????? If so, your camera should be setup to take smaller pictures.

    open it up in "paint" if you're using windows. Click on Image => attributes, then resize it there. Try making it 640x480.

    Yeah, problem is that I keep it on the high-res in case I ever get a good picture I want to get a print of, but then if I try and post it, or e-mail it, the file is too big. I know there are ways to compress images into a lower-res format, my buddy can do it quickly, but I'm not as computer-literate as he is.

    What kind of camera do you have? I have a cannon D20 and they fit on here just fine on the largest 2000 by 3000.
