    Nice fish! It looks like you had a good year.

    I suppose those musta' been caught in BC, or Alaska, or someplace where it's legal to remove a wild, unclipped fish from the water. If not, then you might wanna remove a couple of those pics before the raggin' gets started in earnest...

    You beat me to the punch. I was ready to rag on him about the fish out of water thing.

    Ohh PA-LEEZZZZ.... loosen your wader belts already! Besides, the water dripping from the fishes snout is a continuous stream of connected droplets, so technically, it is not completely out of the water :ray1:

    You guys, we needed to get him to admit it was in Washington before we are justified in giving him shit, becuase despite the laws, you can lift a steelhead out of the water for a photo while still properly handling the fish :p We can see water running off his hands on the lift shots. Nice fish man! I need to go fishing!!!

    The fish look like they were handled quite well to me. I'd just be concerned because WDFW/NOAA has dinged people for having wild fish out of the water by just their posting pics online.

    Beautiful fish Jake:thumb:

    You are one of very few who can attest to that kind of success in one season, let alone a lifetime!

    Most of my fish went un-photogged this year. But I still have a decent collection.

    Yup, pretty paltry collection Evan... right! Good shots -- particularly like the B&W image. And where have I seen that character before :hmmm:

    Nice catches Evan!

    Yeah, I would be reluctant to give out my locations too with your success.

    I'm curious. How many "fishing day's" you put in a year?

    If we remove the puget sound from the equation; I would say less than 10% of my trips didn't yield results. This year i only tallied my fish.... Didn't count trips for some reason.

    Damn Evan, either you know where the fish are or you're out on the river 24/7...

    I learned a lot this year. I'm no steelhead guru by any means, but I have some spots that do well for me. Those places definitely inflated my numbers.
