    Got a little excited when it came time for the shot? That's a nice lookin fish. Up for another afternoon trip this week?

    These were taken with my Pentax Optio W30. I'm still too nervous to carry the DSLR on mountain streams...I fall down too much...

    Granny - glad the wet fly worked out and nice bow. We need to get P.A. to give us a few camera lessons.

    P.A. - fantastic job with the rod & camera. Thanks for sharing.

    I hope to work on a little park photo essay of my own this weekend.

    I too was out on Saturday and caught the biggest Rainbow I've ever caught in the park. After measuring it against my fly rod it taped out at over 14.5 inches. Needless to say very memorable for me.

    Considering I use the same camera as him...yes, it would appear that I need lessons.
