Kevin and Greg and Len

Three Gays Mills boys celebrated trout fishing coming to a close for the 2016 season.  We all lived in the small town of Gays Mills 50 years ago.  We are all retired now.


 Between the three of us we topped 70 browns today.


Not a cloud in the sky.  There was frost when we first began.  The catching was slow for the first hour.

 Most were pretty light colored.

Most were under 13 inches.

 Spinners used in outing.

Near the end of the outing I pointed out a spot at the top of a tight feed funnel and told Kevin that is where the alpha predator would be laying.  A couple casts later and some positioning and Kevin hit the sweet spot.

His gold panther martin size nine was rocked.  We saw the huge male brown go up on its side and we were all three awed at the "Bronze Beast" he had hooked up on.  This thing was in its full fall spawning colors and an amazing hooked jawed slob.

I had Kevin go down stream a ways to find a good place to net it.  I navigated the soft slippery bank and netted it.  All that was left to do was take some photos.


The tail was at the crock of Kevin's elbow and its length ran out past his hand.

Kevin's personal best by a long ways.

Wandered A Little


Give Brookies A Break

2016 Season was the first time in my life that I did NOT target brook trout.

They could do with more anglers leaving these native species alone.

They have gill lice to deal with.

Any conscientious anglers out there should make an effort to avoid streams that have gill lice ridden brookies.

She has an eye for a good photo.

I believe she is bitten by the photography bug now.
