Before And After Photos


Recommended Posts

I thought Creekwader's idea about before and after pictures would be a good thread for Thanksgiving, so we can share some memories that we are thankful for.

Childhood...9.25 lb flathead I caught on a firetiger crankbait! At my uncle's house at LOZ. My little sister was mad at me so she poked my face out on the picture with a thumbtack. I remember I shoved a blueberry up her nose in retaliation. :lol:

A couple good fish from the awkward teenage years:

This one was a couple years ago. Last year we got a virus on our old computer and lost all of our digital photos, most of which I never saved elsewhere or printed out. I was devastated. For some reason this one was printed. These aren't the greatest pictures, I know, but it's the best I could do with the scanner.

I know some of you ol' boys have some much better shots from back in the day...Let's see 'em!

Happy Thanksgiving all.

I bet you cherish that one with your dad, tippet. Really cool pic!

I do. Dad passed away in 2002 and I miss him every single day. My dad liked that picture so much, he projected it onto a wall in our basement, traced it out and then painted a "mural" I wish I could find the very last picture taken of us fishing together, it was on Taneycomo Christmas day 2001, but his widow took it with her to IL after he died. I hate that women as much as I loved my dad. And thats a whole lot of hate!!

You are so stupid you threw a rock at the ground and missed.

Cool thread.

1981- I'm 14yo in Philmont, New Mexico. I have a wad of line, a couple hooks and not much else. So, I took some fuzz and thread from a sock, tied it to one of my hooks and fashioned a pole from a branch. The creek was unbelievably small, but had a reasonable flow and there was definitely fish in there. Little did I realize at the time they were wild little brookies. And my sock fly fooled them.

1995ish- Creek down the hill from my first house. A fave of myself and Patfish, we speak often of going back there one day. Caught quite a few there back in the day.

Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

Killer display by all.

I bet everyone here has had a spoonbill in their living room at one time or another. :D

Somewhere I have a pick of myself and a couple buddies sitting on the couch cleaning a huge mess of bullfrogs on our coffee table. Why we elected to undertake that task inside the house...totally escapes me. No wonder I've been divorced twice.

Didn't take a pic of me and my buddy cleaning a turkey in a motel room in Osceola. They even had a note posted to not clean fish or game in the room. Oh well... took care of the mess. Like Wrench said, why did we do that?
