Wow, while sight fishing. 17lb browns...all the while we're stuck in this god awful rain pattern with rivers blowing out daily.

Honey pack the truck, time to move on...

It would have been more impressive if it was with a dry, streamers are cheating.



What materials do you think I should use for the legs?

Wow--That fish looks fake!

I have no doubt whatsoever that it is real, though. I just think the gigantic mouth on that thing makes it look "otherworldly."

Anyone know if it was released?

Very nice fish thanks for sharing that fish would spoil me

As far as the weather and the fishing its getting to be a great fall around much of NH if guys from MA/VT wanted to do some work and buy a NH lic. they too could be catching trout for another month or so. I am sure even in VT with high flows there has got to be some fishable water just gotta get off your butt and go find them

Great fish.

I lived in Northern NM and fished that area (not the ranch). Great fishing up there
