1. When your checklist looks like this: Fall in βœ… Lose a nice fish βœ… Get stuck but think it's a fish and set the hook 🀷 βœ… Pink sage gives out and breaks after ...more "hook set" βœ… Change reel to back up rod βœ… Cast again and actually land your trooot! βœ… 10/10 would do it again! πŸ˜… Maybe without breaking my rod this time. Good thing I have the workweek to pace out my breaking and losing of things! πŸ˜‚

      Nice pic Elisa, let's hope sage can replace your pink rod. When the day is done sometimes you just have to laugh at all the mishaps and it makes a great story ...more ha ha....
    11. Were gonna need a bigger fridge!!!!!
    12. Elisa T 0
      it wasn't intentional Robert but you just gotta roll with it sometimes. Lol I'm still down my sage but that's why there's backups!

      very nice catch and pic
    2. Would love to show you Pathfinder for some awesome Walleye :) Elisa :)
    3. Fishidy is so awesome to meet sweet fish lovers like myself!!!!!!!!! And you too Elisa!!! Mircale mile is awesome. Been kinda crap for a few years but I think it ...more is back. Looked like the Mississippi for a few years but I think the trout are back :)
    4. LOL Would LOVE to get Fishy with ya, Elisa!!!! So cool that your enjoying your time in WY!!!!
    5. Elisa T 0
      Chris and Noah, y'all are right! I usually have a zillion pics with every fish so I can pick out the fridge hangers! Lol Practice helps too though if I can catch ...more em. πŸ˜‚
    6. Elisa T 0
      Bass Tracker how awesome!! Next time we head that way I'll have to see if you're free to get fishy!
    7. Noah Shapiro 0
      Yeah, fish pictures are hard. The most recent catch on my stream was a one in a million photos. Fish held perfectly good light etc. those never happen lol
    8. i thought you were just showing off your wedding ring! haha I've found that holding the fish is tough in the moment, the camera man has to tell you slide your ...more fingers down, angle the fish a certain way, etc or whatever. probably 1 in every 5-10 fish pictures come out exactly how we hope haha. my biggest concern is always trying not to make the fish look smaller than it actually is so the picture fully justifies the fish.
    9. love your pics
    10. I'm probably just upstream from you in walleye bay lol lol
    11. your cooking it Elisa!! I'm kicking it at Pathfinder with the walleye!!! would live to meet up!!! Fishergal!!@

  5. Happy Friday! This little lady is going to be quite the angler!! Well, she already is! So, watch out boys. 😜 11 (going on 12) years old and already hooking up ...more with big feesh! 😍 I love watching the kids get excited about fishing! I can really feel their enjoyment and it's great. My other favorite part is watching their interactions with their parents when they have one on the line like this or just caught their first fish! I didn't have this myself when I was growing up so it's really neat to see that experience from a third person view. Y'all are definitely raising them right! πŸ’•πŸ’•

    1. b ripoer 0
      It's all good Elisa, you were part of the experience that's what counts. Good times with friends and loved ones, and an awesome pic thanks for sharing.

      Darn that pink sage was a pretty good fly rod
    8. Dang!! Hate to hear about the sage! When I was there in Wyoming we caught them really good the first day. The next day the lake turned over and it was pea soup.
    9. Elisa T 0
      Lol no worries Morris! I have heard good things about the San Juan! That is crazy! I definitely shoulda got me a 6wt for this trip. I fished 5wt all weekend, lost ...more some big ones, and broke my pink sage. All worth it though! πŸ˜„ And now I'll be more prepared. πŸ’ͺ
    10. Oh and forgive me!!! Happy Birthday:))
    11. Elisa it is an awesome place and very remote too!if you get down to the Navajo dam in northern NM. San Juan tail waters. It's sick fishing!!! I quit taking ...more pics of 20-22" trout. Started with my 4 weight and had to go to a 6 WT . They were taking almost all my backing on the 4. Did I mention that they were taking size 20-22 zebra and blood midges?
