    Paul,Dan, I'm never gonna make it as a photographer but here are a few snaps of the 2nd days fishing [never took the camera 1st day!] biggest of these went around 8-9 lb,not the longest barbel but just look at the girth on them.Unfortunately nobody about to take some shots of me holding the fish but you get the idea of the length by the shot of my rubber wellies! Next September/October looks good for another trip,good chance the weather will be kind.

    Nice pike solo but a bit lean .

    Those are lovely barbel Andy! I particularly like the ambience of the Wye , it looks dream-like in the photos. I am going to check maps and fishing licenses, September may be a good time. Tomorrow though I am on my way to the Lochsa for the beginning of elk season there.

    Yeah! They say 'the magic of the Wye' and for me it is.Moving on,I'm slowly but surely slipping towards semi-retirement so in a good position to take a few days off anytime.....which I do now! Fully realise its a big trip for you/Dan but September time for 2-3 days fishing should be primetime for the river to be in perfect condition and the surrounding trees/foliage at their best. I've definitely realised I need this 'fix' at least once a year! Goodluck with the Elk.

    Had a great day up on the Provo the other day!



    Caught probably 10 nice rainbows, including this 15"



    This rainbow was really pretty:



    And I caught one brown trout that had really pretty orange spots:



    I love this river!

    Lovely looking spot Dan,smashing rainbow,do you take one or two for the table or catch and release? Looks like the trees are about ready to shed their leaves,great time as the seasons change.

    Thanks! I usually just catch and release, my wife keeps telling me I need to bring a couple home sometime so we can cook them up though. This was actually the first time I have really fished with streamers. I typically fish dry flies and occasionally nymphs but it is streamer season right now so I thought I'd give it a shot. Wow! I can't believe how much fun it was! The fish hit them so hard!

    Yeah, none of that "Was that a strike? I dunno... maybe..." When they hit a streamer, they're typically trying to KILL it!

    Nice photos!

    Exactly! I feel like with streamers they are hunting the fly rather than just grabbing it as it passes by.

    Went out to some new water the other day and caught this nice 16" brown trout:



    It was an awesome little creek that seemed to be full of big fish that probably haven't seen much pressure. I think it is my new favorite spot!
