I've never caught a tarpon or bonefish, so that's my goal.

Was sitting and drinking a beer at below great spot on the Current R. It is swift about 20 yards up and corners into this bluff. Two fisherman I had passed earlier come on downstream and guy in front casts into 1st corner hole by bluff and zzzing, reels in a beautiful trout -guess about 16 inches.
He quickly stows it away and manages 3 or 4 casts in that stretch while guy in back of canoe steered and managed couple casts himself Iconic. Wish I had a video.

I don't know fishing worth a damn, but could tell these boys knew what they were doing.

The guy had a (Mike) Trout shirt on. True.

This toad was caught about 200 yards from my back deck a few days ago.

40 pounds 6 ounces. Beat the current state record for browns by 6 pounds (which was set in February in almost the same place, previous record was 28.) Only a pound and a half from the world record.

I've seen plenty of bruisers cruising the docks, but biggest brown I've landed is around 12 pounds. I expect the WR to be broken within the next couple years.

You're in new hamshire, right? If you're interseted in fly fishing, you should take trip to Manchester, VT, to Orvis headquarters. They put on a lot of public fly fishing clinics.
