Dave Jensen, owner of Fly Fish Alberta and Fortress Lake Retreat, sent us these very cool pictures with a note:

“The sight fishing for big brookies up at Fortress Lake has been so good lately it inspired me to drop the rod and take up an underwater video camera. The attached shots were of me swimming around after pods and individual brookies in the 3- to 6-pound range, as I gathered some underwater video footage (which is kind of neat, too). Some really neat fishing lately, and some amazing sighting opportunities too!”

As someone who regularly catches 3- to 6-inch brookies, the sight of these bruisers makes me want to hop a flight to Alberta. The background scenery isn’t too shabby, either.
