Welcome to the PG's new hunting and fishing blog. We'll have occasional posts and photo contests, starting with our annual Trout Photo Contest.
Send in your digital trout photos April 17 through May 15 for publication on the Post-Gazette’s website.
Winning photos in categories Big Fish, Kid Pix and Artsy Shots will be published in the PG print edition in mid-May. Winners of last year’s photo contest are not eligible to win the contest -- the same guys keep winning every year. But hey, their photos are great and we'd love to see more, so they're welcome to submit photos for posting only.
See readers’ trout photos here starting Monday.
To get you going, here are some photo examples from my family.
I kept that steelhead, caught on a Wooly Bugger on Seven Mile Creek near Erie.
That's my nephew TJ Filus of Trafford with his first trout, caught last year on Little Shennango Creek near Sandy Lake.
My dad, John G. Hayes of Harrison City, nymphing under the bridge at Twelve Mile Creek near Erie.
