[report]Warning! Huge photo dump.

I have a ton of old photos. Recently I made them all digital so I could preserve them. I got a kick out of looking at them so I thought maybe some of you would too.
You're not going to see anything amazing. Mostly just a kid all hopped up on goofballs. You will see some fish, some skiing, and some scenery. There are plenty of SOBF-style pics to impress the professionals.
I didn't edit any of them. I wanted you to see them the way that I see them, in all of their scratchy smudgy glory. I even left the screwy white edges for a sense of nostalgia.
A couple faces were swirled to protect the innocent.
This is gonna take a few posts, hope you got a fast computer.




I caught my first trout here. Probably my first 50 trout.

Image

Image

First brook trout and first fish of the west.
Ees a beeg wan.
Image

Neoprenes and pink croakies.
Baller.

When I got my first shop rat job I pimped myself out.

I graduated from college.
I lived here for a while. Many of you might recognize it.
It was quite the shithole, but off the back was some great fishing.

Image

Image

Image

Image

We fished from float tubes for a long time until I figured out how stupid they are.

Image

Sometimes we rode horses to the fish.

We used to fish for carp a lot.

I know some of you know this guy.

Image

Image

I bet some of you know this gal, the queen of certain Colorado tailwaters.
If you ever see her on the river, say hi. She's the best.

You should pretty much know who I am now. But I can still keep you guessing.
If you ever see me on the water, it might be this guy...

Image

or it might be this guy.

I would like to meet the man in the green that made the blue damsel fly tie.

Wow, that was super fun.

That is a good idea with the scanner. My vintage is such that the vast majority of my fishing and skiing photos are on paper only.

How many beers did it take to post all those photos up?
