    the OP said he would only leave the post up for a limited amount of time. Like others said large fish (if i had to guess 26-28 inches 4-5lbs, but i am a horrible guesser I'm sure someone else who saw might be able to give a better guess), fin intacted angler holding it a few inches off the water, possibly pinching the throat just below the gills for grip.

    Pretty sure it was posted just to stir the shit pot

    I didn't think you could delete a post if you started a thread???? I thought only moderators can do that.

    Some of the fish shown in the gallery photos certainly are not held "correctly" yet they are not removed.

    I need to bring Sherlock in for this one.

    I think that the tinfoil hat crowds bullshit radars going off is going to make this more memorable, and draw more more attention, than anything that the original rainbow pic would have.

    Well, apparently it was a whitefish from the met. Case closed. Hell, if it wasn't for whitefish on the met I'd be skunked half the time there.

    mfsno1.jpg Don't know what the BFD is with report and inquiry pics on a known stream. I suppose it MAY cause a stir. But the sort of lunkheads that go running after freak 10# triploid trout in the Methow, when this was one of, what, maybe two?, probably won't fish well or catch much anyway.

    Above is a pic from my latest trip to the MF Snoqualmie. Biggest trout I've caught there. Though I've seen bigger.

    10incher, I can't believe you had your hands in that fish's gills. He probably went belly up seconds after being released. Please refrain from posting pictures of mistreated fish.

    Nice job with PhotoShop. Either that or a large rubber fish :)

    I carry a 25-inch rubber redside with me at all times just for photo ops.

    I have to admit that I contrived the post even before taking that pic from a Google image search. That isn't even me. (I would never "gill" a fish)

    Still... I have to wonder how many "guest" lurkers will see that pic and rush off to the MF Snoqualmie!?!

    Just a little sarcasm, hopefully keeping in the spirit of the thread!
