End of Season

Evening.
Back to my Winter Home Pool...

Fishing is over..



Thanks to all who joined us!!

Fishing was great the first part of the season, then Mother Nature was probably on holidays somewhere and forgot to send us rain from August to mid-September.
We managed to land fish anyway, and actually it was a great challenge and interesting fishing. .... Light tippets, nice presentation and patience, always pays off.
The low water "shore lunches" were actually even better than the sandwich in the inside pocket of your waders, waiting in rotation!!!

What!!!?? It's already time to go, we just got here!!!!


Happy Fall fishing.... (I'm jealous!!)

A..

Before coming to the US a few friends and I would take a beat on the Tweed for the last week of November and it was cold. But, there were a lot of fish in the river, mostly colored up and headed upstream as fast as possible. But, every now and then, a bright silver fish upwards of 10 pounds would warm up even the coldest borders day.

Great pic !
Yeah , it's a real shame that rivers such the York, and especially this year, the Matapedia come into their own at the VERY end of September. Steeve Bujold on the Petite has quietly guided some folk into some very impressive late season fish ,also !! There's certainly a need for at least two extra weeks of fishing on someof our rivers !!

Nice late Grilse
Claude
Ya shoulda photoshopped the bateau gris out of your pic
Boy, I GOTTA stop posting from work and set up my tying vice on the desk next to the 4 PC screens
Cheers

Another of the party got this lively fish


Which tried to escape as I pressed the button on the camera, we popped her straight back in. About 11lb and fresh in off the tide.

maybe photoshop the blood off the waders and fish and the release would be more believable!

In addition to the blood it looks like there are scales on thewaders as well. This photo probably won't make it into the pages of how best to hold and release a salmon.

Blood yes there is blood but if you have just played a lively fish in a big river there is bound to be some blood, the fish had a hook in its mouth. Look at the blood it is the thin diluted blood that comes from a mouth wound, not that horrid thick deep red stuff that comes from a deep gill raker wound.

Do American fish not jump weirs or falls? Just watch the salmon splashing against the stones.
I agree that may be the photo wasn't the best idea but the angler wanted something to show his familly and friends, what is better for the fish a knock on the head or a few scales in a photo call.
