Here are some photos and a brief overview from a few of my more recent outings.

I landed a 20" holdover Brown last month, one of the fattest fish I've ever seen.

Here he is recuperating before release.

Later that night, I got this nice low light shot on a neighboring system.

I got up to the North Shore for some Steelhead a couple weeks ago. Sure enough, I hooked up on my 2nd drift. I landed a larger fish a while later, but he jumped out of my hands on the attempted picture. Bastard...

I've also gotten out quite a bit in recent weeks for bigger Brookies. Many fish in the 14-15 bracket on my last two trips, along with a surprise holdover Brown for a buddy. The year of the 16 will be this year, I'm sure of it.

Great looking Trout! Are those falls in northern Wisconsin, or Minnesota?
