Deep in the heart of every man is a longing to live as God designed.
Nowere is the freedom to do that more possible than in the wilderness and beauty of God'screations.

"But I gota ask you"
Your screen name is Brookie, but your holding some big green fish
wasup with that?
Well actully story behined this "big green fish" is a little unique. Last July, on my last day of vacation after a week of"brookie" fishing in Maine. My better half asked me to take her and my daughter for a swim at a local pond. After an hour of "fun" I went back to my truck grabbed my rod and trout flies for some "reel fun", and hiked though the woods to a small cove. I tyed on an adams irresistible size 16 hoping to hook into a perch or blue gill. The first cast after 10 seconds of jigging and twiching, I hooked into a hand size blue gill. I retrived all but 10 feet of line when this " big green fish" came out of nowhere and hit the blue gill like a freight train. To make an unbelievable story short, after 10 min. I was finally able to beach this guy. I know you probably think this is just so here's the other picture. I also am an avid catch and release proponent so that "big green fish" was put back to catch another day, but I am sad to report that the blue gill didn't make it.....

Since the "big green fish" was an accidental catch then I guess we can forgive you this time...just dont let it happen again
BTW as you can tell we like to have a little fun around here between the warmwater&coldwater guys but its all in good fun
