Best fish of the year...??
With December quickly coming to a close I thought it might be neat to look back on the year and see how other fellow anglers did... The traffic on the forum has seemed to really slow down here lately so what better than some fish p**n to spice things up a bit and get us all excited about next year... :cool:

If you can, post up some pics of your best fish for the year. If not, then at least a memorable catch.

For me it really was a tie... best bow and brown. Both were caught back in February.

Happy Holidays to all!!
Tight Lines,

My best fish of the year was a 15+ inch wild rainbow, caught in a Virginia blueline, 2/17/11. Not a great pic, but I was trying to work quickly to get her released, I did not have a net that day.

My best brown of the year was this 10-11 inch wild brown caught in a NC blueline on 3/08/11.

My best brook trout was this 9.5 inch wild brook caught in a NC blueline on 5/21/11 and again on 7/11/11. The brook was caught in the same hole on the same fly both times. +1 for catch and release.



As we all know about the one that got away, on 2/23/11, I caught a 17+ inch wild brown in VA that refused to have his picture taken, biggest brown I have ever caught. On 9/11/112, I caught a wild brook in NC that was at least 11 inches, biggest brook I have ever caught, he also refused to have his picture taken. At least Oldman saw that fish, so I have a witness. :smile:

I did catch some stockers one day in winter of 2011 that were larger than these fish, but I only count wild, stream born fish.

A few others that I think deserve honorable mention. These are a combination of NC bluelines, VA bluelines, and GSMNP fish.

Not my best year either for big fish, but quantity made up for it. One of my better smallies of 2011:

One of the better blue-line wild trout caught:

Plenty this size, which is a blast:

And the year was a good one for fishing too. Just the places and scenery was well worth the trips:

Not my biggest but definitely my favorite:
