Nice fish! It looks like you had a good year.

I suppose those musta' been caught in BC, or Alaska, or someplace where it's legal to remove a wild, unclipped fish from the water. If not, then you might wanna remove a couple of those pics before the raggin' gets started in earnest...

You beat me to the punch. I was ready to rag on him about the fish out of water thing.

Ohh PA-LEEZZZZ.... loosen your wader belts already! Besides, the water dripping from the fishes snout is a continuous stream of connected droplets, so technically, it is not completely out of the water :ray1:

You guys, we needed to get him to admit it was in Washington before we are justified in giving him shit, becuase despite the laws, you can lift a steelhead out of the water for a photo while still properly handling the fish :p We can see water running off his hands on the lift shots. Nice fish man! I need to go fishing!!!

The fish look like they were handled quite well to me. I'd just be concerned because WDFW/NOAA has dinged people for having wild fish out of the water by just their posting pics online.

Yup, pretty paltry collection Evan... right! Good shots -- particularly like the B&W image. And where have I seen that character before :hmmm:
