    If you can get it to focus where you want (much better once you get the hang of it) an awesome camera..
    Here it is...thanks for including this info.

    I've been fishing since I was a kid - absolutely love it. I've got so many damn fishing photos it would take me ages to go through and resize them all, but here are some from our place on The Dean River in BC. World renowned steelhead fishing that are some of the toughest fish in the world to land. These fish will take your fly, head down river and take you all the way into your backing then turn around, put a loop in your line and run BACK up river as fast as they went downstream. They really are some of the hardest fish to land....a 40 inch steelhead in this river is like landing an 800lb black marlin - they are that tough.

    Then there are a few from Bora Bora...I'll have to get some more salt water deep sea photos up when I have more time.

    More great shots, thanks for sharing. Am I correct in assuming the Dean River location is so remote that you got choppered in? That's a great fishing trip. Those are some impressive looking meals you've got some pictures of...the overall presentation of them is top notch and they scream of good, fresh food. Now I'm hungry.

    Awesome set of photos.

    I edited your post to insert images inline so they resize for people with lower res screens. They may be out of order, sorry, can't do anything about that.

    Nice. I'm anxious to catch some steelhead and chinook when I get back to North Cali.

    Thanks and yes, the only way in or out is via chopper. And it can be very, very dangerous getting in and out - as you can see from the photos the only way up over the mountains is through those tight, glacier filled passes and the weather can move in an instant and shut you off and that can get pretty scary when you are only VFR. Not sure if any of you caught out pilots helmet but he is an ex Snowbird ace - that guy can do things with a helicopter that will make you $#@! yourself.
    When we goto the camp, there is this one pass that he always takes and the top of it is solid glacier. As we get to the top of it, he brings the choppers skids right down to the ice and just barely nudges it along until the nose of the chopper is RIGHT at the edg of the glacier and the other side is a 7500 ft drop off STRAIGHT DOWN. Then, he lifts the tail and nosedives the choppers straight down the side of the glacier and about 300ft per second - Scary is an understatement.

    Anyway - yeah, the food is really something else. Especially considering how remote the place is and they only get resupplied once a week. And also, the only electricity is from generators. Having those kinds of luxuries literally in the middle of no where is amazing. Only downside is if you get hurt badly, you probably wont make it as it's an hr flight to the nearest hospital. One guy a few years back took a spill down a ravine and ruptured an artery - bled out right in front of us.

    Steelhead are my favorite fish to catch. Never eaten one though as these are all catch and release.

    I've have been fishing since i was a kid. Me and my father would go fishing pretty much anywhere and anytime we could. Oh memories. But lately it rarely happens. I should go through stuff to see what pics i can find about it.

    Awesome pics everyone. Keep them coming.

    That's great. I have to learn fly fishing. I wouldn't even know how to shop for that stuff.

    Thank you. Not as nice as the pics you and the others posted. Tried to rep but no luck.

    They surely are some fat rainbows. Hard to find them in this size in these days.

    Fly fishing is very entertaining. As for the bait, usually i use real worms for trouts, carps and mullets. Worms are great for those fish, better than any artificial flies. In that day i was looking for some Esox though and i didn't have worms so i used the artificial stuff that i had.

    I don't eat fish unless I catch it.

    It's good for saltwater too. Tarpon and snook here in FL. But anything's good. It's a cool way to fish.

    Very nice indeed where were those Rainbows taken ? They seem to have a huge gurth in relation to their length - were they spawning females ?

    I got them in Iran. 4 Weeks ago iirc and these fish spawn in winter. To be honest i don't know why they have relatively big gurth as i never caught different kind of rainbows. This sort of rainbow is the only one that i'm familiar with and their gurth look normal to me. Click here to enlarge

    I figured I would bump the thread with a photo and a video. I still have to scan all the good pictures though. These are from tonight. My dad walked in the house after bass fishing.
