    Well, after having a long stretch of errors with my log in i was finally able to reset my password and get back on, missed this forum as the content is usually a constant and not boring like a lot of other forums.
    Been fishing a bit since February spending all of my time on stillwaters. mostly chironomid fishing but a few fish on sinking lines and leeches. 3 different lakes, many species of trout!. here are some photos from late winter/early spring stillwaters (some photo credit to Sinkline, and some to my friend sam) been a good start to the year. 9 fish over 20 inches since february, and ive been to my backing quite a few times already!

    What about this one Brandon. Aren't these your hands? :)

    Great job the last couple months Brandon. You've become quite an excellent stillwater trout fisher!

    thank you all for the positive responses. Gene, it's great to hear from you as i haven't talked in quite a while! john, thank you, the bulls are awesome fish and the picture randy posted is my favorite fish by far the last season or two. it taped out at 24 inches. the fish was caught below the bobber on a #14 glass beadhead bloodworm pattern, the first and only cast ive made with that fly so far..it shows promise!

    I hate it when folks post out-of-state fish porn. Fo' sho' way better fishing to be found in Oregon, Idaho, Montana, etc...

    I gets sooooooooooooooo jealous!

    P.S. Very nice fish! Great job!
