IJ, These are good smallies. I've caught a lot of them in the 14-18" size range. I am trying for a "trophy" fish of 20" or better on the fly. Its like a 20" brown trout is considered a trophy fish in most streams and a 12" native brookie in the park is thought of as a trophy. That is all I meant. Sure you can go to a hatchery supported stream and find big fish but a "wild" trophy is the challenge. I have been trying for a "trophy" smallie for some time now and springtime is one of best times to find them. They're have been some big fish caught this spring on creek minnows and plastic worms by other local anglers, I want to do it on the fly, a personal challenge thing.

Gotcha...20 inches must be a magic number, like 10lbs for a largemouth.

I got an 8-inch brookie on Cosby on Sunday...and I consider that to be a bit of an achievement for that stream, although I lost a few others that were about that same size.

30th b-day on Ashtabula River in Ohio. We caught chromies all day long. 7wt rods, with mostly a skein fly (sucker spawn pattern) or a Krystal minnow. I have many more pictures if anyones interested.

kytroutbummin- That is a beautiful fish. I don't think I would sleep for a week if I pulled something in that huge. Were glad you could post it for all the rest of us.

Caught this guy on 4/20 on the holston. The camera angle does not do it justice but thought I would post it any way. It measured at 14".
Caught on a #14 Adams.



Will post some better pictures soon.

Default more steelhead pictures

Here is a link to the rest of the steelhead pictures. We caught so many fish that we stopped taking pictures at about 10 or 11 am. This was probably less than half of what I caught that day. There were 6 other guys from the derby city fly fishers and all of us did equally good.
