Beautiful fish ya got there! I really like the way you are holding him in the second photo. Not so much in the first one since you were releasing him. Please handle every fish as if it were a newborn babe.

You're a good man you catch on quick!

Beautiful fish! I have gotten to the point where I leave the native fish in the water while I get them released. Snap a pic in the water and off he goes.

We're all here to share and learn, I do more learning and I've been fishing for 45years.

My next challenge is "Steelhead on a Fly rod". Anyone want to take me out and show me how it is done?
