>is this Luis from FF@???

Indeed Brian. And if I remember correctly you've been around FF@ since the early nineties as well... like Juro, right? I know some guys in Argentina that fly fish for dorados. Maybe I should ask them to write a piece with pics and I could translate... hmmm 8^)
Can't believe you guys are fishing already. Here in Montreal we're back to deep freeze mode. That thaw we had was too good to be true!

RE:BTW - steely pics wanted

Hi Luis,

I've been around FF@ since being introduced to it by Juro - on the banks of the Snoqualmie River where we were both chasing steelhead no less. Subscribed sometime in the mid 90's - seems like quite a while when I look back.

I sympathize with you guys stranded in places that get a *real* winter like Boston and Montreal. I remember snow drifts, frozen locks, etc etc. (grew up in Maryland). Seattle gets rain, but we're swinging flies at least 10 months of the year (I usually take most of December and January off).

Looking forward to more great pictures - that Atlantic Salmon looks awesome!

And BTW - you never did divulge the origin of the dead mouse - did the Brookie regurgitate it?

Yeah - curiousity's got this cat too... what's with the >blech< mOuSe? (do tell!)

I gotta mouse story - Bill Littlewood (Brian you know him) caught a largemouth with a dark yarn coming out of it's gullet one day when he and I snuck into a drinking supply pond. He said "wow this thing swallowed a ball of yarn" and yanked the yarn. It was attached to the half decomposed body of a water rat... the tail looked like yarn.

I have never eaten a largemouth bass since that day. Not that it has anything to do with the meat, but...

These last photos are from local Montreal friend Eugene Hoyano. According to him, the little feet and tail were sticking out of the brookie's gullet. I love it... Carnivorous squaretails!

Tod Dillion uses a HUGE fur fly to catch HUGE Labrador brookies. He brought pictures to Sully's fly-tying clave at the Stony brook sportsman's club. The material appeared to be similar to nutrina, which is a material our friend Martin Joergensen from Denmark uses to give his seatrout flies a seductive action (in much smaller quanitities). The net result was some amazing brookies from the Canadian north, willing and able to eat rodents. Another friend Wayne Norwood is a regular Labrador trophy brookie flyfisher. I'm astounded whenever I see these giant brookies!
