This one won't be breaking any records anytime soon, but she's my first of the year on a dry-fly; therefore she is special to me...

Pondhopper- yeah...a picture anywhere else on that pond and it would look just like all the other fishin' holes...
LMAO- Ain't that always the way ? Y'Know, I almost went there very recently, but I decided to detour into a lake that CW's always touting. *SIGH*- yup, whenever ya don't catch fish.....ya always wish ya had tried somewhere else

Still too early for that place. A couple friends of mine fished it and the pond down the hill from it the other day and only had a couple hits-no fish. I'm not going to get serious about that place until June.

I should also mention that I think Oriskany creek is starting to turn on. Got a 20 inch brown yesterday during my lunch hour in the village of Clinton. Nothing like fishing in people's backyards.

...can everyone finally see all the pic's? I think I'm starting to get the hang of the "attached image" option. It appears my pics are way to big for use here...and I can only get away with resizing them once without getting lot's of distortion.

Yeah, I know it. I thought I'd give it a whirl anyway. Actually, I did c & r one 15 incher and had one other bite. I just didn't feel like dodging boats and playing troll & tangle at Ken's pond......I like that one later in the year too. I think that I may have saw your two friends.....1 was dabbling in the small pond's outlet and the other one was trolling solo on the little pond.

Ken- yeah, I can see your pictures now.

Caught myself a nice 26" walleye while fishing steelheads in the Black River mouth in Dexter on Lake Ontario. Not my intention, but still a nice big fish. Too bad it's out of season. They're hard to hit this time of year, but they're easy to reel in. The Oswegatchie is dead right now. Can't wait to get back on the mountain streams. I still need a nice brookie before the warmwater seasons open up.

CW,
Beautiful fish.Boy, this board has some real fishermen on it.I think its cool that everybody tries to share their photos.Now, all I got to do is get it right and I can join ya.That first brown looks like fresh battler of this spring.The ones from sero `s hole look colorful and over 20" and I especially like that salmon trolling in December.Talk about perserverance.Great shots!!!!

WB

Nice pics - It must be nice to have a stream that close by that you can hit on your lunch hour. Like the way you present your fish in the pictures with your net and rod.

CW- That's a Wicked fish for the O. Sweet and Sugar-like! ...Woah!
How did you fish it?

PS> Yeah... those big browns are gettin' Old in the 'honey-holes"...
Daisy doesn't even want to smell them anymore.
It's fun to catch them in the winter though.
Remember when you were losing them on stripped-streamers? And how the dead-drift-lift brought joy...?

Anyhow, maybe we could fish together sometime...

:drink:

2:19AM - Do you ever sleep or just think about trout around the clock? We thought we had it bad. Yikes.
