    My best fish was the one that I didn't catch. This was a distant second.

    My best fish was an SRC from the salt in September. I didn't have a tape, but I think he had to have been easily over 20".

    Not the biggest, but definately the most memorable... early morning on the Clark fork all by myself in July. A very cool memory...

    This hen had to take the cake. Last cast, last day, only king! Hit the river too early in the season looking for chromers...still worth the trip.

    Since I got to do about 1/5 the fishing I usually do in '06, and 1/100th of what I wanted to do, Foghorn Leghorn will stand as my best of the year unless I pull something out of my sphincter in Hawaii this week..............:rofl: some decent cutts and searuns, but no steelhead over 6 pounds ............

    No pics, but 6-7 lb. largemouth out of a remote columbia basin lake. I even got to see the take.

    I was taking a break, stretching my legs a bit and casting from the shore. I was about to pick up for another cast when I see these giant white lips come up from the bottom in about 3 feet of water right off the bank, and engulf my halloween bugger. I think we were both equally surprised as it took her about 20 seconds or so before she decided to really fight.

    Best bass to date, 20+inches.

    ON my birthday. By the way, a scene in a famous flyfishing movie was filmed in that exact spot
