Nick Rutledge  Deer hunting, fly fishing and the great outdoors!

A partially fogged and wet camera lense made for a horrible picture of a beautiful fish. Wish I could have got a better shot of this seatrout but I'm not much of a photographer. On the plus side I did get to land it on the new 5wt Fario.

Decent one from this evening. Finally got to break in the new Guideline fario 5wt. Fell for a craft fur bait fish.

Finally!!!! They're about two weeks behind schedule but better late than never. First few trout of the season from the harbour. The fun is just beginning!

I think I'm on to something here. I can see the $100 bills coming in now. Macy moo moo thought it was a great idea too.

Happy Mothers day to the one and only @meganleedawn. You're an absolutely amazing woman. Truly one of a kind. Your task as a mother is never easy. There are always new obstacles to overcome on a daily basis. You make it look so easy which is one of the things that make you such a kickass mother. You never cease to amaze me. Thank you for blessing me with 3 beautiful children and for always looking out for all of us! Love you!

Some backwoods brown trout action yesterday. In my opinion this probably the most remote watershed for big wild brown trout in Nova Scotia. A good day here is being lucky enough to hook one of these beauties and lose it. We were extremely lucky and landed a few 18 inchers which is pretty much the most common size.

Sawbuck broke the ice tonight with the first trout of the season. Quick picture and a safe release. It's hard to tell by his facial expression but he was pretty pumped about his catch lol

Blue Arctic fox, black craft fur and some deer hair. Anxiously waiting to give this one a swing

Playing around with some craft fur, minnow shimmer fringe and a magic head. This fly should be deadly for seatrout. That's why I'm calling it the Harbour Hopper!

Bead head micro zonker. Definitely lots of room for improvement but not bad for my first time I guess. I'm sure it'll still trick a hungry seatrout!

Another great day here in ship harbour. Lots of fresh air for everyone and lots of mud for Jarrett!
