Howdy, folks. I've been meaning to post a couple pix for over a week now, and I have finally figured out how this works (big thanks to Bugg and Paula!).

Two good buddies and I fished up on the Middle Prong and Ramsay Prong weekend before last. I landed my first fish of the day early in the morning, and it turned out to be the biggest bow I've caught in the Park. We measured it right at 11". Not a monster, I know, but it was colored up really nice and very healthy:

We really wore out the specks that day, the largest of which were in the 9-10" range and very healthy looking as well. Here's one of the nicer pictures of one my buddy GrannyKnot pulled in. These are such beautiful fish!

That's all, folks! :biggrin:

Absolutely beautiful fish, Carlito!! Just makes me look forward to the day I can get into the Smokies and do some trout fishing.

Wouldn't it be awesome if someone made fishing camo clothing that mimicked the trout patterns? Maybe I'll be that someone!

Go for it!! Design and manufacture, it's bound to be a hit. Put me down for several 2X shirts!!. Is there a different cuddling technique for the different species (ie. Brookie or Rainbow) ?

I've always heard rainbows like a spoon but can't say I've ever tried it.

Nice fish! While I hooked into and almost landed a monster rainbow (Raven gorge 14-16"), that rainbow beats the 10 incher I was so happy to catch. Nice work!

Thanks, Duck! I wish you had been able to land that big boy. I'm still waiting for the day when I can land one of those big piggies that Bugg has been shocking up :rolleyes:

If I manage to bring the trout camo to market, I'll definitely let ya'll know!
