Thanks for the photos Ann!

Ahhh, June seems so far away...

To everyone else, thanks for the rod input. I was thinking that the 9wt would have just a bit more backbone than an 8wt if it is necessary to put some serious pressure on a big fish (say to try and keep it from heading too far down river). I'd prefer the 8wt since it is easier to cast all day than a 9wt, so if I can get away with it, that's what I'll use.

Cheers,
Troy

PS Since Ann has started posting some water pictures, I'll put up a very pretty hen that I landed last fall on the York.
