    One of those places where it's irrelevant whether you catch anything or not. Beats my cubicle anyday ! :biggrin1:

    Beautiful pic. Reminds me of Brokeback Mountain (the astounding landscape photography, the scenes where they "went fishing"). Whether or not you had someone along with you who you could make out with, I'm jealous.

    My Dad used to drive the family out into the Brecon Beacon mountains of S. Wales and I saw similar landscapes there.

    Thanks for evoking those memories Fruitfly.

    It looks a lot like the areas of Colorado that I visit. I could be sitting on a rock in the shade. Just me, my thoughts, and the river.

    Reminds me of "A River Runs Through It"

    YouTube - a river runs through it

    That water's gotta be cold, fresh & refreshing.

    It looks like a late autumn picture with gloomy skies and leaves fallen from the trees by the riverside.

    I always wanted to learn how to fly fish. I tried it once at the practice ponds at the Sportsmen's Expo here and it was tough to get the timing right. Seems so much more elegant than baiting a hook and casting a bobber.

    How many fish you catch?

    Love to go fishing! This was on a charter out of St. Thomas! Hooked a Marlin, but lost it after an hour fight. Part of the game!

    Which is why I prefer to troll or use live bait. You drop the rig & lure/bait into the water and either the boat drives away from it or it swims to where it wants to be eaten, no tangled lines. The only reel I can really cast pretty decent are the Zebco's and the spinning reels. I can cast a Bait casting reel, but sometimes I get the tangled line issue. But I guess you are talking freshwater fishing. I only do saltwater fishing.

    If it was today it could only be in the Southern hemisphere judging from the deciduous trees along the river.

    I think the majority of trees there are dead, But it was about a month and a half ago, being lazy i guess. Its Colorado BTW. So beautiful here, just so many tourists :(

    There is nothing like walking up a river in the mountains with absolutely no one around!
