I hit the big Thompson today with my buddy. It was the first time I've ever fished it. The water was super low- we had to drive for a long time before we found fishable water. They were definitely biting, though. Lots of hits and a handful of fish landed. Most were pretty small but it was a mixed bag. One bow in particular was super small but I took a pic because I think the juvenile mrt markings are pretty cool. My buddy supposedly got into some good dry fly action last week but everything came on nymphs today. Specifically, I did well on a prince nymph sz18. I seemed to have a pretty even mix of browns and rainbows. Overall, it's a cool little fishery especially to just get away for a couple hours after school or something. It was really nice to get some action on the fly. Other than some fish I got on the fly about a month ago, I haven't really done any Fly fishing.

6" fish? You're better than that. The forum deserves better-
I tend to agree with slayer on this one Whomp. While the fish where pretty and fish porn is what we all like to see; the Big Thompson certainly has plenty bigger than that and you're not a newby.

It's a report and he put it in the report section. Gave good updates on conditions and even gave location which is what a report is. He never claimed that his fish caught were huge, just showing peeps that he actually got into some. No problem by me....had this ended up in the Brag Board, well then....8)

I agree totally. BUT- I think most on here would agree with what I said.

Just trying to steer the lad in the right direction-

I wondered why a guy would take and post pics of sub average fish like that, but none the less it is a good report.

Totally agree with this. ^^^


But think all the remarks from other posters are funny as well.

Whompy, you've done a real nice job not letting this forum get the best of you..... who cares if your posting up 6" fish and snagged wiper lol. Imo there's always been a strong correlation between how many posts you produce with how you've dealt with others razzing you..... am I to believe this is the end of mr. sensitive and our post count whore? Either way, I wouldn't ignore every poke.... slayerfish is indeed pointing you in the right direction. One day you'll learn how to laugh and do hope your silence here doesn't last..... you've been known to respond with some off the wall **** and why I enjoy reading your posts :pound:
