A couple pics from a couple weeks ago in the San Juans. Trip was surprisingly low on fish count, except a few nice Cutts in a tiny creek above Rico (the town).

after a couple years of snowboard bum transience, the act of "settling down" consumed a lot of my time and energy this summer. yet i still managed to get in a few fishing excursions in my new northwestern home.

my father came out for a visit and we explored the beautiful twisp river.
Image

i caught some little fish...
Image

...and he caught some bigger ones.
Image

one of the last few days before i started working.
Image

borrowing a float tube for my first attempt at "belly boat" fishing.
Image

a rather relaxing way to spend an afternoon!
Image

despite all that lounging, i managed to hook a trophy bass!
Image

and better yet, the most prized trophy of any fly angler--the pumpkinseed sunfish!!!!
Image


ok, so these photos are but comic relief compared to most of what's been posted here... but dammit i grew up in the northeast, where 4000 feet is a big mountain, and 14" is a big trout. now that i've spent the last few years climbing some real mountains, perhaps it's time to go fish for some steelhead! anyone got advice??

I was fortunate to spend a month traversing the American arctic by river last summer. We caught and ate a lot of fish. These pics help explain why, for me, fishing, like split-boarding, is as much about spending time in the back country with dear friends as it is about the pursuit of the fish or the epic line or turn.

Ha. Yup. Some pinks, mostly chums... I love chums. Chum-eater. Unbelievable beauty in the arctic.

If you've been missing Mumbles around here, you can find his antics over on The Drake message board.
He seems to have barely passed the initiation rite of passage. 21 posts in 11 days already!

Dude catches some nice fishes though.

Well not being the fellow to really want to give up on anything once it's season wanes... I convinced a couple bros that cold camping is the shitski... We headed up to my Ely cabin, and set out for some fishing at a kind of a hidden campsite. We had to don orange due to it being deer hunting season.

And it turns out Surly brewing just released "The Darkness" An Imperial Russian Stout.

Nothing says "fokk yeah.. let's do this like a 9 am brewski"

Image

group photos on a sweet overlook

Image

Brookie after taking a grouse that fell into a deep crevasse after I shot it

Image

Hunter/Gatherer Surf and Turf

Image

Another fine Rainbow on a somewhat hidden lake.. They were loving the worm harness spinners

Image

And this may very well be the last fishin for the year.... Well until the ice comes in, and we do it all over again.

Bring on the split!! :thatrocks:
