A Hunting and Fishing sub-forum should probably have a thread where we can post up photos of guys with fish, the pretty places the fishing occurs and the vehicles that take us to our fishing holes - shouldn't it:D?

I do quite a bit of fly fishing but don't often take a camera along and even when I do have the camera, I often forget to break it out.

This past Sunday I was on the South Platte and my buddy had the camera.

Anybody remember this poster from back in the day (aka the 70's)?

PS - Good idea Ricardo. I love to see what guys manage to yank out of the river.

Now we're talking..... I've got some fish porn I'll post up tomorrow.

And..... I'm leaving for a week on the Bighorn 2 days after I get back from Moab. That's a pretty sweet first two weeks of May!

I'm not too up on fish, but is that a Walleye?

When I was a kid, I used to call them "Lolleyes" :lol:

I think I may be reposting these, but they're fish of a lifetime for me so it's worth reposting. All were released.

The first bow measured right at 25", didn't get a weight cause I wanted to let her go. Size 20 RS-2 on 5X. The picture just doesn't do that fish ANY justice. You can see how small my fingers look compared to the next few pics. This was truly a once in a lifetime fish.

The monster brown was taken on a fly I tie called Orange Sherbet. Size 14 custom hook on 4X. You can see the fly right in the corner of it's mouth.

The last pic is of a male brown that is ready to battle. HUGE tail, shoulders and kype jaw. A beautiful healthy brown trout from a good ecosystem. Size 16Orange Sherbet.

Tom, I could take you right to it:D. The South Platte can be challenging. The fish seem to move around. The ease of catching them seems to vary as well. I talked to a guy on Sunday who only caught a couple but the week before had caught about 20 in the same stretch of water. :dunno:

Whenever I fish the Platte and hook a fish, I feel like I've accomplished something. It's a tough river and the fish are quick to laugh at your offering if something is just a little off. You need to bring your "A" game.

Nicely done!

Well I am a C game flyer, picked it a few years back but don't go out often enough and Waterton is in my backyard. I just need to go out and do it but something always comes up. Need to make time to go fishing again.

I took up fly fishing last year while we where on a vacation in Wyoming and was hooked instantly. It had to be one of the most relaxing times I can remember. I plan on making one of my wheelin trips to CO this year a couple days longer to fish I may have to get some info on where to go from you guys or a ride.

I feel that way about the Blue. All of the front range is so heavily pounded. I have gravitated to the small streams or the ones everyone else think are junk.

I am perfectly happy catching 8 inch fish anyway. However, the Crystal is on my bucket list... I will spend some time on the taylor this year too.

I am just glad you found a place to stand on the platte. lol

You and me, both. Lets get the 3wts and dries and hit some small streams this year. My favorite type of fishing!
