  • Pictures of Fish

    People don't post as many pictures of fish anymore. Not sure why. I finished up a big project in July and have actually been fishing some recently. Trips to Kauai and the coast followed by a few Central Oregon trips. I will start with a few fly caught fish in Kauai.

    Some fish on gear. I caught the little GT the one night I got lazy and used one of my son's spinning rods. That little bugger pulled hard! The other two are my son's hands. If you go and want to actually catch a huge variety of fish, cast a small castmaster. I thought I would catch a lot of reef fish on little scuds and shrimp but he killed me in both numbers and variety. The snapper and christmas wrasse were two of his more interesting fish.

      Cool to see the Salt pics. You just never know what will eat your fly in the ocean.

      Yeah. I wish that was the case in the Oregon surf. The occasional salmon or bug rockfish on the 6 wt would be a trip.

    Shook hands with this beautiful cutt on the oak grove this weekend. Brought it in on a dry too. Click image for larger version

      I lived at Silvertip Camp in the early ‘70’s. Loved to fish small streams in the Upper Clackamas drainage for these gorgeous little Cutties. They’re on my (very long) list to carve.

      One of a few Tigers from this summer. You can see the eyes with lashes on my fly (From Michael's!) that I'm sure made a huge difference.

        I use 50-60lb Flouro and although I've had leaders really frayed after landing a fish I've never lost one from it being cut completely. A buddy went wire for a while and he swore it cut back on THE EATS.

        I am surprised the flouro holds up. Good to know.

        Certainly a fun type of fish. I will never forget a pike eat a few years back. I was using a 5" long fly and a 6" wire leader. Fish came up out of the weeds turned on the fly and was gone. I strip set and didn't even feel the fish. Whole rig gone in a flash.

        yeah, 50-60lb "bite" tippet for me...I've gotten a bunch of eats this year with that. It's really not a matter of "if", but "when" I get broken off, but with super clear water, I do feel it makes a difference. Last year, I got no eats with wire for the first 6 sessions and the day I switched back, I got bit.

          Hi Andy. You tied your fly to the fly line for that first one (insert winky guy here if I could)?

          The fly I caught the tiger trout on was 20 times as big as the one I caught the brown on.
          You don't need no gypsy to tell you why,
          You can't let one precious day slip by.

          I was on Hosmer this spring fishing a sinking line and a paddler made a comment about my other rod. I looked down and my 5wt had lost its tip . Must have gotten caught in the reeds.

          I always try to break in a new rod in a unique way. Figured the new dry fly rod should catch its first fish on a damsel adult. Took a while but first fish on the new rod and my first fish on an adult damsel.

                  I managed a Metolius Super Slam: Several Bulls, a couple of Browns, a Brookie, a Whitey, and a pile of Redsides...

                  Cheers!!

                    Good point, Chin. I did almost get a Koke too...took a swipe at my Dolly Llama and came up empty.

                    Canuck, yes they can hybridize. Point being, they've been there for quite some time in the upper reaches.
