    Beautiful fish.
    I smell a debate about proper CnR coming on.

    No debate please. I never take them out of the water, NEVER.

    I did this time. The reason why the fish is not laid out straight is because while the fish was in the water I put my rod down, I then took my fly box off and threw it over by the rod.

    I then quickly took the fly out. I did not use a net and the fish was VERY fiesty.

    I then grabbed it and laid it down and quickly flung my rod over it and then straightened out the fly box and took the photo. I then grabbed the fish and set it upright stroking the sides and it took off like a bat out of hell so I DONT WANT ANY C & R CRAP!

    PLEASE let me gloat. PLEASE.:ANGRY


    yours,

    Well,

    I did buy a rell for 280.00. I needed it though and they always tie my line and help me out.

    About 12 years ago, and I don't know if it was Kaufmanns then, they were nice enough to buy about 20 rods off of my dad when our lodge in Illiamna went under.

    You take I-90, then get on HWY 10, then there is a bridge, you park, and you walk and walk and take a break, smoke a little, then walk and walk and 20 minutes later there is some water that is slow.

    That's all I know.... :DUNNO

    Alomost looks like a small summer run steelie. Do they still run on the Yak?

    PS: Put some MP3's on your site so'ins we can get a touch of your music?

    I have three MPS's on my computer I can send to any member. No one in the states has heard my stuff yet.

    Scott Rockenfeld of Queensryche is playing drums.

    I can send an MP3 to anyone if I get an e-mail address to send it too. The site just got started today. I am going to get rid of the boxes around the site, I can tell already. I will post the whole mp3 thing when the site is near completion.

    Hmmm.. not that this has anything to do with flyfishing, but can i post a mp3 here?

    Nope, won't let ya!

    Post the MP3s to your site with a link here- that should work. Do you have email?

    Nailnot,

    I cannot post the mp3's to my site. (it's against the rules, a label thing). I have to wait until October 20th, before I can do that. It's a long story.

    Besides, I am not doing the site, I have a company that does it for me and they are asleep I am sure.

    I will however, e-mail them. I don't care what the label thinks. The most honest people in the world are flyfishermen. If I can't trust you guys, who can I trust?

    My e-mail is phil@philfischer.com. I will reply with a mp3.

    yours,


    phil
