I got my first big fish on my new 3 wt. I caught this guy on Oil Creek using a grannom emerger. What a fight!

Good work! Always satisfying catching larger fish on smaller gear.

Excellent Job and photos.....I was out fishing stockies at Pennypack Park on Sundays. Managed to let 8 trout enjoy the view from my net before I released them. One of the trout I had caught before - I named him/her "One Eye" I also got one 4 lb Sucker who gave me a real good fight on my 3wt. Another sucker was belly up and I rightsided the fish for it's sake. I hopes to catch this nice 20lb carp that I see every once in a while.

"I am respected when I walk into any fly shop. Salespeople wait on me hand and waders. I once tried underwater casting just to see if I could. I am the most admired Fly Fisherman in the world. And when I fly-fish, I use the Orvis Access. Stay Fishing MF

Thank you! I got the new Otterbox Armor series for my iPhone five. The case can protect it underwater for up to 30 min. If you can still stomach dunking your iPhone you can take good pictures.
