Thanks Bill. I've passed through the inlets with a lockdown sphincter many times! There she is:

Not fly fishing, but this video was taken by a friend from college a few weeks ago. Who'd have guessed an orca could be such a lazy hunter?!

I do. Since I started spey casting, I havent touched my single handers. I dont take any photos of anything though. Around here is mostly small/ large mouth bass, carp, shad, snakehead (havent gotten any yet), and a couple other things. Stripers are running now but I havent hooked into any yet.

Heading to Alaska later this week. Will be bringing my 9wt, 7wt, and 5wt, along with some fugly sticks (for meat fishing).

Will do a little combat red salmon fishing to fill the cooler, float a couple rivers, a day of Halibut, and a day of clamming. Pics to follow.

On the 15th of July 93k red salmon came into the river, early guesses are that over 150k came in yesterday.

Tarpon on 12wt but don't have any pics. Hoping to get back into some salt water fly fishing targeting red drum.

You are close to some incredible trout streams like the battenkill etc. Around the mountains of Virginia with all the vegetation and tight casting we use short 3-4 wt stuff. Roll/aka barrel casts are a required skill set here.

If/when I do catch some decent sized fish I'll post them up. I just stated this year and certainly have had my struggles but it's still been enjoyable. A D90 fishing trip would be fun

Colorado has 2x normal snow pack so fishing will be great later this summer. Water levels have been low the last couple of years.

Still low. According to the snowtel data Co is at ~84% of average state wide. Individual drainages vary. e.g. the Yampa is at ~28%, while the Delores is ~2x ave. The Denver Post article was misleading.

Damnit. I can never seem to catch anything of decent size haha. It was an amazing sunset tonight though, caught a couple of these guys on the chernobyl ant. Had something large rip out my tippet from the leader.

Just leaving Alaska now and although I didn't fly fish, guy in camp picked a couple sockeye while there, crazy.

8 hour layover in Anchorage now.

The mental fortitude and sheer strength of will to land than monster is commendable! It must have taken hours and you didn't even break your rod?!? Congratulations!!

I'm just kidding. I enjoy fishing too...
