beautiful fish from today
« on: August 01, 2013, 03:49:39 PM »
This was 1 of 3 rainbows, and along with the bows I got 2 cutties and 3 white fish - no northern pike minows. Lol! I was suprised started at noon ended at 4:00.
 
Any guesses on how big? I think 20 inches is about right.

The tug is the drug

Our tradition is that of the first man who sneaked away to the creek when the tribe did not really need fish.  ~Roderick Haig-Brown

I should really give this up, wrapping bits of fluff around a hook for fun just can't be normal!!

It could be many places so your safe from the wrath of Randy now ;D
Still well done. River was proably more productive today as there was most likely less dogs and humans out and it was cooler with cloud cover. :)

If someone says you fish too much, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Hey Max - nice looking fish!  Thanks for sharing the picture with us!

If we start to get some serious rain, hopefully that will bold well for the rivers here.  Yesterday was a start anyways...  :(
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Hey, you're standing on my rock!! Great fish but as I said elsewhere that's not 'the one' I had there, would have eaten that one as an h'oures derve. ;)

Very nice fish Max!

Judging by the scale of your hand size and the curvature of the fish during the pose (and based on the fact that the span of your knuckles is roughly 4 inches)... I'd estimate that rainbow around 15 or 16 inches in length. If you're wanting do know the actual size, just pick up some sticks of various lengths (16; 18; and 20 inches) and repose for a second photo, in order to achieve a more accurate measurement.

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

I'm sorry you didn't get any NPMs for the Grand Slam there Max!  If only you'd managed to sneak in a pikeminnow...  but as we all know, those are the most elusive treasures of our waters, and hard to come by.  ;)

I was going to estimate it at 15 inches, which is a nice fish!  Great colour in that rainbow.

lol for some reason that fish was hard to turn i dont know why i though i was snagged at first cuase it wasnt moving and then slowley it went up stream and then when i tried to turn him it was game on he decided he jump once and then go down stream and stay in the fast current i had the 2 weight lol so that could have been why but still a great fish lol
