    This morning I released a very large brown speckled corn trout just under 2 foot.

    i usually just set my goals at the end of the year and i just use the biggest fish i caught ;)

    it was cool once upon a time, when my dad and i hooked almost identical rainbows, and it was the biggest one i've caught

    I have been tormenting my mind with just this notion. What should be at the head of the list. Can I realistic surpass a 26" bow, not a trip, a 24" cutt, a 22lb Chum.

    After much thought and soul searching it has been decided. I want the official world record of a fly caught Stickelback! Does anyone have an idea how big a stickleback gets?

    I once upon a time set out to obtain a world record. I was in the Queen Charlotes fishing for, whatever. Two days concentrated on halibut with eight pound tipet. I had the fish. Two hours of concentrated fight resulted in an empty leader. Oh well, tomorrow. My best to date, a 29.5 rainbow frow a spring creek in Idaho many years ago. Today, I would release it. Then, Penny Thurman mounted it for me. In 1976 it cost me $129. A fortune at the time. Penny is out of West Yellowstone. It would be a $1,000 fish today. She is great. The regret. Two days after I gave the fish to Penny I caught a twin brown. Third week of May with rain below Slide Lake. There was a guide with two clients. It started to snow and they went up to the road to wait it out. I slid in and a few casts latter, with a big ugly, I had the brown twin of the rainbow. Guide and clients were quickly out of the warm up to join in. I released the brown. Now, many years latter, I dream of that twin on my wall. Oh well, like the gal in City Slickers, I ride off to my mind picture.
