    Congratulations on your first. You're a goner now, another productive life ruined. Soon you'll be living in a van down by the river.

    Looks like a winter run buck in pre-spawn condition. Good picture of the Stilly too; note that there is way more sand than gravel and cobble. It used to be different, honest.

    Right on... the first fish I caught I almost squeezed in half I was so excited.

    Just for reference you're supposed to keep native fish in the water. Because yours is out of the water a lot of feelings get hurt and there will be a denzien of internet nannies thumbing their noses and crying in their cosmos tonight....

    Awesome fish - congrats on catching your first fish on the swing. Too cool.
