    Great fish guys!

    Sourdoughs-

    It must be a hatchery! no adipose ;)

    Here's my biggest of 06. It was a nice buck that nailed my fly after i had lost almost every fly i had, all in one run. I lost 8 flies, and one sinktip before i caught the fish! It was the day from hell until... Sorry about the bad pic, i didn't tape him because i like to get the wild ones back asap. Most likely in the 12-14lb range

    34 inch Dean fish. Easily the hottest single fish I have ever had the pleasure of taking for a swim. I caught some bigger ones this year but this fish smoked my drawers off!!
