Nice.. I always thought the smith was a dink stream but I guess this proves me wrong. Them stones seem to be strong medicine for big browns everywhere!

Transylwader

All browns were harmed in the making of this report. For that you should be shot >:D

Those are bigger fish than I've seen from the usual Smith River reports. Nice.
Too bad you killed them all after releasing due to the major squeeze you put on 'em.  :o


au contraire, we have photographic evidence that the peewee squeeze, doesn't kill fish... he photographed that big bastard that I caught the other day almost two years ago when it taped out at a measly 19 1/4 "

Hey Wooly look how he went from long and skinny to long and fat during the spawn.

TM, I have already apologized to 22midge via PM.
I'm ready to let it go.

Woolly Bugger

Phil, I do think there is a better way to handle the fish... we agree on that...

don't forget that they throw them off of the bridges to stock and they survive that...

peace out...

OK. I'll admit it. When I catch a large fish, manage not to break it off, and get it to my hand, fumble around for the net and camera, try not to lose the fish, the net is in the way, etc...
I might mishandle the fish, and maybe after releasing it, it may die.
I try to do my best, but realize that it is a blood sport, after all..... ;D

Jfey

Yup, going fishing

Nice work! Time to tie up some black stones..... -+;
