Anybody Fish?
« on: April 11, 2012, 05:55:33 PM »
I fish...a lot.  It's practically a sickness to be honest.  In fact, if I won the lottery tomorrow I'd fish and brew, brew and fish.  That's about it.
So, if you fish, let see some fish pictures.
To show that they don't just have to be pictures of fish, here's a shot of the beautiful Bow River in Calgary Alberta from last summer.

I fish, therefore, I am. With ya on winning the lotteryl Hunt, fish, brew, grow. ;)  No pics hosted on the web, will have to work on that.

Fished all my life.  I love it.  Mostly I fish with my youngsters these days.  And those tend to be the fishing trips I get pictures from anyways..  so here's a few pictures of pretty much me and my kids fishing.

Loopy - getting kids into it is the best.  I have 4 boys and they all love to fish.  Working on fly casting with my 12 year old (oldest).  I'd rather spend a day looking after the kids than fishing myself.

Nineteen pound steel head I caught in the Clearwater, in Orifino, ID. Best man trip I ever been on.

A man works hard all week, so he doesn't have to wear pants all weekend.

So no catch and release huh?
Nice fish Weaze.  You should come up to Canada.  I've got a couple good friends who guide for steelies on the great lakes tributaries.  And the beer...  Oh God, the beer...

Catch and release?! Yeah, I released it onto the smoker.  ;D

If i leave now, by the time I hook up the camper, i could be in Canada in four days I think.  Give or take four. See you shortly!

Fished all my life.  I love it.  Mostly I fish with my youngsters these days. 

I was going to make a joke about how you get the kids to stay on the hook but decided it's better to just agree with you. 

My kids love to drown bait.  We don't get enough days to go fishing anymore.

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

I was trying to find my fishing photos, but I'm coming up empty-handed.

Instead, I'll post a favorite one of my son, at about a year old...
