    Ceviche, did you catch that sickly fish or just net it when it floated by dead? I've seen supermodels fatter than that. Larry King said that thing looked dead...and skinny.

    I'm with Ford Fenders. Dave is the leader in the clubhouse with a 20" fish. Rules did not say it had to be a football fat brown. Everyone can respect the leader or take his place.

    Thanks, Tim, for the jersey. I wear it with pride and the knowledge that the yellow the others see is only the envy in their eyes.

    Tight Lines, Folks!

    I just looked at that fish on the first post. It looks like a midget compared to the fish in Montana. I believe that my latest 18" fish was twice as big as that runt you are showing.:p:p:p:p:p:p:p

    I think this should be a "dryfly" challenge contest... but maybe I'll dredge Dry Falls or somewhere with a crawdad imitation or something!

    the rules state that a fish has to be pictured measured not pictured with the net buched up under the fish. if that fish is infact 20" you found the worst angle possible to photograph the fish

    The tricky part is minimizing the time a fish spends out of the water when practicing C&R. It was my haste that resulted in a lousy photo of a Pass Lake trout. Sorry gang.

    The year's just begun, so it doesn't bug me to strike my first submission. Catch that Sean? I think I'd rather risk losing while striving towards a clean win.

    At least I was able to collectively thumb my nose at everyone. :p:p:p:p:p:p:p

    Tight Lines, Everyone!!!

    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!
