The trout on the right with the slash on the lower jaw plate. Cool! You didn't say you caught a cutthroat.

Great Day Fishing

Great Day Fishing

Sounds like you guys enjoyed your day to the fullest! Toons are kind of fun but I feel better after 3 hour in the LBD than after only 30 min on the toon.:shock: Good looking fish you caught there also, now just to make sure, the first was a Brown and the second was a Cut just so you don't get them mixed up.:lol:

I had a good time too but I didn't catch a thing.... My grandkids did all the catching! We went to Hagg lake about 10AM and put in by the fishing pier and the little guys and gals caught a dozen or so perch. We weren't keeping anything but they sure had fun catching them. It was the first time fishing for my grandson who is 6 now. I'm glad they live close enough for me to take them once in a while.

We fed the birds too but it was only a Raven/Crow (I'm not sure which).:rolleyes:

Lets do it again!

I know the brown was the first on a fly but was that also true for the Cutty?

Way to go guys. One of these days, I'm going to have to break down and "toon" my tail off. The pics look great and yes Jim, you should be a lake guide.

A float "tune"? Did you mean tube? If so, you cannot cover nearly as much water in a float tube, as you can in a Pontoon Boat.

A tube is generally kick-powered, and a toon is generally rowing powered (or with flippers if you wish to slow down your presentation).
