Thanks to Mr. Doogue for those awesome Bruiser Blue Days pics. I'll keep breaking off into new threads when one gets too loaded up with pictures. Some folks may not have high speed access. Also remember to keep the .jpg size down if possible. I think the target size is 30K.

As Chris said:
"Let's be fair guys ANCIENT is a relative term. I'm (only) pushing forty and any relevent
Good point.
Few of us can go back like Art B. who flyfished in the 1940s. But hey, we were maintaining the tradition as we fished through the last few decades. What the heck, you got a good memorable pic, chuck it up. Date doesn't matter. Many of us were not evan flyfishing back then. I just want to see and share some good memories over the long winter.

The last Michigan Pere Marquette (PM) River wild steelhead I took.
All steelhead, brown trout, and king salmon on this river are wild.
In 1984 from the fly fishing only section, now also no kill.
All fish have been released since, 17 years. My part to conserve this valuable fishery.

This is one of my most memorable pictures. It is my sons first fish, about 2 1/2 years ago. To me it seems like yesterday, but to my son it is a long time ago.
