For a while I've thought it would great to see photos of just saltwater fish caught on fly. If you agree, please start posting your photos. First fish, best fish, old photos, what ever. Show us what you've got.

Include your stories too, if you like. I know there's some whoppers out there.

I unhooked a red and tossed the fly aside.  After releasing the fish, I go to cast and this guy's on the end of my line!

sorry for the double post.  Not sure how it happened.  Not sure how to delete it, either...

I hope bigger & better & more of em next time!

These are from my files - probably three or four years old. The picture of the fish with the crab fly in its mouth was a blurry mess. I more or less rescued it by running it through a Photoshop painting filter. Anyway, it was a memorable and beautiful morning. The water on the flats was smooth as glass, and I caught maybe five or six reds. That's about as many as there's time for with our big tidal swings; the flats drain completely at low tide, and the window of opportunity closes pretty quickly, especially with a weak tide.

Here are a few pics from my last three DIY trips. My personal best redfish from the marshes of Louisiana on a frosty February morning. My first taste of fishing for pollack along the Maine coast. Although i didn't catch any over 14 inches i thought they were really cool looking and fun to catch (thanks to PJ for that recommendation). Too bad that fishery has been devastated over the years. Last, my first baby tarpon from the middle keys. I found out they were only slightly easier to hook and land than the adults. Maybe this summer I'll get a big one to the boat....

Great pix, John. Those pollock are extremely tasty - kinda like haddock or cod. A friend of mine who lives up in Jonesport used to catch some pretty nice ones right off the docks.

Awesome Dave!

I can also see from the second photo you are really into pink...rod and all.

Keep then coming.

If I don't catch something pretty soon I'll have to dig into my old archives.
