With work and a relationship tugging at my ever diminishing free time, I haven't had much of a chance to get out fishing much. When I do, I go into beast mode and I am making so many casts, I feel like I am burning more calories than running on a treadmill. Yesterday, I was rewarded with a monster hybrid which also happened to break my largest trout ever caught record.
 26 inch 9.25 lb hybrid.........It decided it really wanted to hit my articulated sculpin pattern like it was the last   piece of meat in the river.
A decent cutt my buddy Tyler caught. The black spot disease really kills the beauty of the Yellowstone Cutts.
Shout out to my buddy Chris. His Cutty Candy sure does catch them.

Its been a long while since I have updated anything on here. Fishing time for me lately has been non-existent. If I am not working, I am in class or doing homework. I cannot complain though. Things are going great! I have had a few hours here and there to sit down and tie up some new streamers though, and I really wanted to try them out. I woke up this morning and found myself with nothing to do. I had the day off work and I had one class at 3:15. About the time I thought about going fishing, my little brother walked into the apartment and I ran the idea by him. He was all for it, so we headed out in search for some fish.

After a drive to check our spot out on a local river that we like to fish, we decided to change our plans and head on over to the Henrys Fork and try our luck for some brownies. 

I made 3 casts and was rewarded with 3 great fish. After taking a few photos of the last fish, we decided to head back towards Rexburg and grab my net that I had accidentally left at the last fishing spot. After retrieving my net we headed back to the HF and started fishing again  The wind had picked up, but that didn't stop my brother from picking up a good fish and me a few more also.

As the title states, all my streamers now are tied with stingers. I no longer need to fish trailer flies, all the short strikes that have been occurring no longer pose a problem. Today was the R&D day for my stinger patterns, and in hindsight, they WORK!!!!! I am officially converted and they really do increase your hookups.

2 ways to get your streamers!!!!!

I am going to have a photo contest on my photo page. All you need to do is like my page and submit a photo  of a streamer caught fish. The winner will get a half dozen of my favorite streamers. The contest will run the whole month of October, so tell your friends.

The second way to pick up some awesome tied streamers is to head on over to my buddy Shane's website. and follow his link to his online shop. He has some AWESOME streamer patterns that we fish all the time. His prices beat any fly shop, and the quality is great. Shane is a fishing machine, and these patterns have evolved over time to become fish catching powerhouses.

In the form of fishing trips for me, there haven't really been many. I have been working 32 hours a week and also taking 14 credits. Stay tuned though, because I will be headed out this week a few times hopefully.
