A September Beauty

H: September 21, 2014: It's been a while since I've posted some good fish porn on this blog. Lately, most of the times when I catch a nice fish, I'm fishing alone. And I'm just not dexterous enough to take a good photo holding a big squirming trout in one hand while fumbling with my camera or iPhone in the other.

This weekend looked to be a perfect fishing weekend on the Delaware. I fished with friends both days. I didn't have a great weekend but at least my friends did. Just as we get down to the river, Jess says to me, "I forgot my phone (for pics) and I forgot my net. Watch me catch a fish." Sure enough, she does :)

Not just any fish, but one of the prettiest browns I've seen in quite some time. Estimated at 20 inches, it fell for a yellow sally of all things—a fair imitation of the flying ants struggling and lying spent in the film. Glad I was there to offer my net and take some photos.

  1. Now I feel so guilty! You let me come and fish with you and I go and do something like this. ;) Excellent job on the netting and the photo. We make a good team - I hope I can return that favor soon! - Jess
