Here are a couple of pics from last year. I've been a member of IA since 2007, but this the first time I'm postings pics.
Heres a nice Peacock Bass I caught in a canal in South Miami in May. Around six pounds.
Now half way around the world, and about 11,000 ft. higher. These pics are from my trip to my favorite trout lake in the Northern Areas of Pakistan. Its quite remote, about a day's drive from my village, followed by a four hour hike .
I tried to be a flyfishing purist but I didnt catch a single fish on the fly during my three days at the lake. Resorted to medium spinning tackle and floating Rapalas and got fifteen. Ten of which were released.
The weather was horrible, rain, wind and hail/sleet throughout, couldnt even fly cast most of the time.
The trail up to the lake.
The biggest fish of the first day, about four pounds
The two bigger fish of the second day, one around three pounds and the other touching five.
All in all it wasnt a bad trip, but even this place, as remote as it is, is not what it used to be. In my childhood the fish would average at around five pounds and anything above ten was considered a good fish. My dad caught an eighteen pounder here. It's still one of the best trout spots in Pakistan though.
