    I don't think I have any photos, but I do remember using a Mitchell 300. Actually put it on an old 9' bamboo fly rod my uncle gave me. Caught a lot of trout on that set up and also a coho at the mouth of a small creek in Lake Washington - those days are gone. Eventually picked up a Medalist for the fly rod.

    I couldn't find any photos of me with fish. My Mom was the photographer in my family and she rarely ever went fishing or hunting with us. I cannot recall ever seeing my Dad with a camera in his hand.

    Here is one photo of me. I'm the one with no shirt. The other guy is my friend Greg who lives about 20 miles from me now. We still hunt and fish together. I think we were 16. So 1966. Buddy Holly glasses . . .

    I'll try to find one of my old fishin pics. Trouble was, most of the photogs of that era were off taking pictures of President Lincoln, General Grant, and Civil War battlefield casualties.

    Ancient recent history...early 70's off Vashon with a friend of my dads. I still remember this day as it pretty much got the whole ball rolling :)

    I found a woman who was fascinated by my ability to fill freezers with little white packages of wild game ;)

    steady Sue; stay on topic...:D

    I had a box full of stuff from my "yout", but the ex threw it out as soon as I moved out. Finding a place to store almost 40 years of stuff isn't easy, and she took advantage of that.
