    Well this is sort of a technicality. Went on a family fishing trip to the sierra nevada's. I was going to yellowstone afterwards with some friends. The fishing pole came up in my mom's car.

    Dont have a pic of the pole next to the bike.
    The picture above is from last year.

    Went again this year. (with no bike this time).
    This time my gf out caught me. I caught 4 and she caught 10.

    There was a serious lack of fish pictures that I had to solve.

    Recent fishing/camping trip. BTW, the Eagle Claw Trailmaster is a great setup for a bike.

    That's because... ehrm.. well.... the weather was too good! Or, I mean, too bad! They were just not taking (mine)! I had totally the wrong gear, need to buy new!

    Ok, here's one from the Swedish trip in my post above:

    It was as tasty as it looks

    Great to see the trout action shots you guys. Also good to see a gal fishing, that's just hot, right? :evil

    Also +1 on the KLR shot in there, and that bumble bee Beamer in there too.

    All good. You know who you are!

    Hmm... brook trout - that's hte one with a red belly right? I haven't gone that far up north, they're mostly up in the northern mountains. That grayling though - fought harder than any fish I've ever had, for its size it was fighting harder than the first 2+-kilo rainbow trout I cought a few years ago. And that wasn't any fin-less reservoir broiler trout, it was in a stream in the south.

    Great thread topic!!

    These are all from lakes around Prince George in north central British Columbia.

    My typical load-out for moto-fishing:

    North American Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis). As you can tell by the generic name it is a member of the Char family. this one is a female.[​IMG]
    Here's a male.

    I know you have native char in Sweden along with some imported Brook trout. I hope they keep these two species separated because they will cross breed.

    Yes, this has been identified as an issue. I think we have the "fontinalis" too, but it's the "namaycush" that's the imported one. They do try to keep them separate. Most of the indigenous brookies we have are in remote lakes up north, above the tree line (although there are several rivers up there that have them too), and they do try nowadays to make sure they don't breed.

    OK, S. fontinalis are not native to Norway(but have been introduced there), but arctic char are!!! That pic you posted to answer my post was and Arctic Char, S. alpinus (I think), or the European version of it. On our west coast we have Dolly Varden trout (S. malma) and Bull trout, S confluentus, which is also just another version of the arctic char. S. namaycush (Lake trout) is also native to North America, but has been introduced through out the northern hemisphere. Now a male brook trout can crossbreed with a female Lake trout to produce viable youg and what we call a Splake. "Sp" as in speckled trout (the Canadian name for brook trout) and the "lake" for lake trout. In fact splake as a "breed" were developed in Canada and have been widely introduced through out Michigan (where I live). They are delicious!!!
