    Just seeing a picture of that monster made me smile. I can only imagine how it felt to catch it.

    Nice Jimmy! Congrats! I would also agree that is the fish we've all been looking for. I still haven't found mine, but I hope it'll happen someday.

    Cheers!

    Crap! Now we're all going to have to pay for your two years in rehab. Don't you ever think of your family? What about the new people in the sport, that picture is just a "gateway drug"......you should be ashamed! ;)

    Thanks for the info Alex.. Decide to hit the methow instead.. Awesome day as well.. 3 natives, couple big dolly, white fish, and a dinner hatchery in the evening. What an amazing river in the winter, glad it was open, even though just a short time.. so different fron the fall season. Was an perfect day to end the season on the methow...

    Outstanding photos too! I'll be there next season! The methow's a great stream, and you've got the Twisp and Winthrop brewpubs too; altogether a great venue.
