My best fish came without a picture, although my friend offered to hike back to the truck to get the camera. It was a lifetime steelhead, native, I estimated to be just over 40" with no arguments from witnesses. If he hiked up the ravine to the road and back down we figured almost 30 minutes, no sportsman would hold a fish that long for a pic. Besides every scale is still burned into my memory today.

So in my minds eye, that is my 'trophy pic'.

This is me with the second bone I ever caught. It's not exactly a trophy bone, but it's the only pic of me with a bone that I have. :) My first one at 8 lbs definitely was a trophy though, but no camera! If I'd had the camera I never would have caught it of course. ;)

My son Jason's first steelhead on a fly, October 2004. T.J., he's almost your age, and probably like you, he's already a fly fishing fanatic.

It is not that big, but over 4 lbs. Caught in a small stream with a 2 weight rod, and size 28 fly with nylon thread for a leader.

I'm guessing you like to fish with small tackle? ;) How "small" a stream?

Some oldies:

André Bernier with the 2002 season record (probably). 63 cm so probably well over 6 lbs

Memorable - Our son Vincent's VERY FIRST trout. After 2 years of rain, snow, sleet and black flies.

Memories: Dream fish, sunshine, sight casting, 6lb tippet, almost got spooled twice

nice fish on the bottom Chris. Always enjoy that first fish photo too, smiling ear to ear.

The river in the background looks so nice on the Salmon photo, what river is that?

Ste-Marguerite River is a pretty piece of water. It reminds me a bit of a section of the St. Joe, Idaho. I understand why you don't travel much; why bother, you would be hard pressed to find a more picturesque place. Thanks for the link to your site, I ejoyed the visit.
