    Hit the South Fork after work today. As always it was a blast. Tons of small rainbows and cutthroats, and one pretty decent sized cutthroat which is the largest fish I've ever pulled out of any of the forks last couple of pics). All caught on a yellow stimulator ...

    Nice fish! Thanks for the report. I'm glad to see the fish are still biting. That's a nice spot;)

    Have you always had a third hand to snap photos with?

    Nice stuff man!

    I'm guessing the pics are stills pulled out of video. GoPro?

    Yup -- these are stills from videos taken with a GoPro. First time I've used one -- pretty nifty, and doesn't get on the way ...

    I move to a different state and now the fishing picks up and the fish are bigger. Go figure.

    That's some decent sized fish! Guess they're starting to fatten up as the seasons change. Gotta get myself back out there.

    Do you have any theories as to what happened to the bigger ones gill plate? Looks like it could be an injury from some sort of predator.

    I was wondering about that -- didn't look like it was caused by a bird's beak or talons. Maybe a larger fish?
