Pictures from a trip. UpstateDave, Glen and I fished four ponds over nine days. Slow but worth it. No brookies were harmed in the course of this adventure.

Then I got home to a pile of dirt and a trench to fill in... Oh, deep joy.

Ha...I knew someone was off fishing, nothing for days. Lucky guys 9 straight days trout fishing....I envy you. Didn't miss much...here. Ryan caught some trout in Colby and kept them...some said way to go....some said you're bad for keeping them. Then some got drunk and said some stuff we should not have and Neil closed down the thread...then we hugged and made up.....and Ryan changed his avatar. All in all just your typical week here on the Huntin and Fishin board.

Why don't you tell us all what they bit on? And a guy who goes trout fishin for 9 days should come home to a big hole to fill.

Scoot,

Never got to use it. Places we fished I felt were to snaggy for it. Like an idiot, on one uphill climb I realized I had BOTH tubes in my pack. Luckily the new one is only 2 lbs. I hope to try it out soon though.

Other than the humiliation of being dragged around a pond in front of all their friends and family.

And believe me, he does DRAG them around....

Anything over 12" and he is screaming like a baby for attention. Sad really.

Unlike some I did manage to catch more than two. AND I didn't need help untangling my leader, either.

Poor Dave is right. He neglected to tell how we hiked into a pond, inflated the tubes, put on our waders, and as he was ready to get into the water realized his fly rod broke.

I suggested we share the one rod 15 minutes on and off but no, he decided to hike out in his waders (and crocs) back to the car, get the other rod, and hike back in. The worst is with my hour head start in fishing I only got a few dinks.

So the brisk walk cleared my head of evil thoughts. Upon returning I promptly caught a nice, fat 17" female.

Now that you know how easy it is to carry two tubes, you can carry both yours and Dave's from now on.
