Check out this incredible Dollie Varden in fall spawning colors! I caught this 7 pound beauty on the Kenai River, on an egg pattern. (Dollies are very trout like, but technically are a member of the char family, just like brook trout.) I believe their name comes from a Tennessee Williams play... At any rate, this fish was a true battler and a blessing to behold!

Beautiful!

(TB, How do those eat? I love Arctic Char, and that catch looks mighty tasty.)

That's a beauty. Now go catch a brookie like that. Smile I guess you have to be in Labrador to do that. Man you are into some serious fun with the flyrod right now. Enjoy and continue to post those photos. cheers

Oops, PB is right. The S Bang I was smoking got stuffed into my vest when I had to run down the bank in order to keep the fish on. But, I can assure you, immediately upon release of that piscatorial beauty, I promptly lit up and enjoyed a satisfying pipe!

Let's convene next July. Bring camping gear, a rod and reel, and your favorite pipes and tobaccos. We'll fish for salmon and tell tall tales around the campfire late into the night...

We should call the convention a "Zen Wilderness Sabbatical" -- that way we can all get time off from work Twisted Evil

If they trouble us about it, we cite The First Amendment Laughing
