  2. Caught 3 nice Rainbows on my new 4wt Fly setup. I didn't take the time to measure any of them, just wanted to snap a picture and get them back in the water. ...more The Trout on the right was 18-20 inches I think, great fight.

  10. Went on our yearly Allegheny run. Had alot of fun with Frank, Jim and Drew. Frank kicked all of our butts bad. I caught 11 Smallmouth but nothing bigger than 14 ...more inches. This shot shows the beauty of the River.
