I believe in you!
Buddha. I appreciate the rod sock you gave me. Not only does it fit my rod perfectly but it looks so well built like a bullet proof vest from Tactical Tailor. Wow man.
So the saga continues, Close but no cigar ! Keep us posted on this epic quest for steel....
I missed the pic, Daniel, post it back up. Resi or not, we all love fish pics.
Por que photo removed?
As embarrassed as I am I will post the pic back up tonight when I get home.
Why embarassed? You caught a toad of a resident rainbow. I don't know anyone who'd be ashamed of that.
In an attempt at not throwing this info into the people faces who are calling it a half pounder, I have this to say as politely as i possibly can.
Half Pounders in my experience from Oregon and California are the chromest of the chrome. It is not uncommon for them to have mostly clear fins. The reason I was taught for them being so chrome is simply that they leave and enter the river all season, to feed wherever it is easiest to eat.
I am not saying you guys are wrong and it is completely possible that was/is one, but my vote from my personal experience would lean towards calling that a resident rainbow based on it's appearance.
yah if anything i was the idiot who posted the thread prematuerly before seeing the fish, so it is my fault i jumped the gun for that i apologize.
Seriously look at a year ago when we first linked up, you had no idea about spey rods, you had no fucking idea what holding water looked like, you had no boat and really no clue.
1 year later in the first week of the season you have hooked two fish, that first one was absolute pig fucking steelhead not to mention two outings both resulting in fish (thats a hell of alot more than last year), you now have an idea what water to fish and what holding water is, you can chuck a spey rod pretty darn good for only 10 months of casting, you have a boat that you can take with you now accessing water that most people cant. you have definetly come along way brohamski not to mention your not a tightwad asshole fly fisherman.
So in a nutshell what im saying is your doing things right. continue sticking to your guns of swinging up a steely because it will happen soon, while my faggy ass is tying on a yarnie and bead
I saw the fish in person and it was 100% a coho
I have to agree
With my luck the next goddamn fish I hook up on that river will be a fucken tuna fish.
DanielO, please look at all the fish I caught out of the Sky yesterday and then tell me you're still embarrassed:
Chin up, guy, you'll catch your unicorn.
Plaegreid is it a white fish? you need better filter its hard to see
