Trout in the Classroom.....

Since October, in my biology classroom we have been raising Brook Trout. Here are some photos of the fish to date. We started with fertilized eggs and these little guys are now about 3 inches long. We have about 35 to release this late april. This is also my first post from my IPad. Works good so far. Enjoy......

All Fins no Faces...





Larry sent me some pictures today, and I decided to show all of the love to the fish. These were taken over the last month ranging from Pennsylvania to Maryland. I think they are all pretty cool in there own way, I really dig the under water photo on top! It's so amazing how the same species of fish (not the rainbow) vary from stream to stream. Each of these fish have traits that really catch your eye and make each photo unique...
It's really sad how much we love TROUT...LOL!!!

February Fun...





Just a few more shots from the little fishing excursion the other day. As you can see by the time we finished and walked to the Jeep things had started to freeze up. Once again it was good to get out, catch a few fish and pull someone out of a ditch. Really wanted to take pictures but didn't want to embarrass the guy anymore...

New Gear and Fishing...






Had a chance to get out this past Tuesday 02-08-2011. Air temperature was somewhere around 30 degrees and water temperature was about 38 degrees. Larry and I manged to get into a few fish and a couple had decent size to them. Your basic winter pattern's seemed to work the best, eggs, buggers, green weenies, etc... Also shown in the above pictures is Larry with his new Orvis chest/back pack system. It is sick, I usually don't try yo push products, but if you have not checked this out do so. It's new for this year and it is amazing. I will be purchasing very soon... As the weather continues to improve so will the post, it's almost that time again!!!
Side note we will be at the Monroeville convention center this weekend for the sportsman show, if your in the area swing bye and say whats up. We will be there representing the Nemacolin Field Club strong...
