Rob,
I have a few more, but I didn't take as many as I have in the past. I have one of a smaller brown that is really dark. not a great pic, but interesting how fish can vary so much in the same stream. My partner is the photographer. I will see what he has and post some more.

Sounds like a great trip and thanks for the report. The blurriness of your pictures may be due to the vintage of your camera? The average $150 point and shoot camera sold today has pretty good image stabilization. Also, be sure that you are only using the "optical zoom" on your camera. If you really crank up the zoom most digital cameras will "digitally zoom" in and the pitures are always at a lower resolution than the camera is designed for.

Again great report. I do like your idea of cropping out the head and tail of that big brown trout. Now the fish can truly grow each time you tell the story and there will be no verifiable way to check!

One other thing to consider is to preset the camera to macro...it (combined with the image stabilization feature) allows for crisper close up pictures.

Thanks for the advice on taking the pictures. I am an expert at cropping out the head. That is why I am not allowed to take pictures of the kids. My wife got me a Fuji Finepix (waterproof). I don't know if that is a great camera or not, but I would say it has a lot more to do with me being afraid to let go of the fish and taking hasty pictures. I think the real problem is that I need more practice .
