    Personally, I love seeing all of the pics in the gallery - especially all the steelhead pics. They gallery is one of my favorite parts of this site. I like to see pictures of other people catching fish, having fun and sharing memories. I look forward to seeing new pics everyday I come here. It is fun to post pics and to share this with others as well - it's just like if you come home and tell your friends about the amazing fish you just caught. It is nice to be able to share the moment with others. Even though most of the people on the site are not your best friends or anything, it is a community of like interest. Definitely nothing wrong with this.

    Keep posting the pics! :thumb:

    I gotta go with OMJ. I have a camera, but I'm always afraid I'm gonna break it or lose it or swamp it.
    I like the pictures. I think they are especially helpful in the C&R movement. You don't need to bring a fish home, just snap a picture and release.

    Me, I just love to fish, hope I never grow up, the body is much older than the mind.

    Hey guys,
    This is Zen posting from Mark Ritari's dorm. We are heading of for another fishing escapade in a few minutes so hopefully I will have some more pron for ya skwalla.

    Anyways I don't fish for the camera and actually don't usually bring a camera but I do fish with dudes who have cameras on hand. And yes, I don't put up pics of every steelhead I catch, about 1 in 10 usuallly. I use my gallery for other applications and its a nice place to host photos.

    Skwalla if you dont like it, just stop looking :D

    for once I agree with baker...we're wasting our time and passion arguing about aesthetics and whether nymphing is cool or not, and in the mean time our wild salmon and steelhead are disappearing from under our upturned noses.

    Looking to the future -

    You may have seen photos from the 19th Century Wild West of locals posing proudly beside the bodies of bullet-riddled outlaws (usually laid out in an open casket, leaning against a building), or photos, some more recent, of local citizens of Southern communities smirking beside the dangling bodies of lynched negroes.

    My point? Today's grip-and-grin trophy fish photo might be an outrage or embarrassment to your great grandchildren.

    The only drama enticing name you forgot was Hitler. You are comparing photographing a fish to Tombstone and the KKK? There's more drama in your last post than a night with Britney. Come on bro, you got really carried away....:beathead:

    Always nice to hear a voice of moderation......

    I like to see good photographs of fish. I think grip-n-grin photos of anglers with their fish look stupid, with a few exceptions. I've fished far more without a camera at hand than with, and have few regrets - except one, the biggest steelhead I ever caught. And I wonder why I care at all about that, except for the extremely low likelihood of ever repeating such a catch. I enjoy photos that are about fishing as much as the photos of the fish, since most really fit the definition of fish porn.

    I love fish porn, though I think the shotgun pose looks a little disrespectful. I do find it a little sad however that some might think it is pointless to catch a big fish if you don't get a photo. I mean you are definately missing a big part of the experience if the whole point is to show off. Of course since we all know fisherman are liars it is occasionally nice to have the proof that you actually are telling the truth. That said I am jealous of the amount of time some members of this spend on the water. I'm sure I would be posting a lot more photos than I do if I were on the water half is much as Zen and a handful of others are. By the way skwala how was fishing on Sunday?

    Skwala,

    I stopped regularly carrying a camera 15 years ago. I remember my fish through words in a journal.

    Don't be envious over a bunch of SF Clearwater boots. As you are aware it is rediculously EASY to catch multiple fish/day. Even easier using drift tactics.
