  1. wow. big catch. you sure you’re in the Berkshires? last time i saw a trout that size was fishing Love Canal. of course, the fish asked me to let him go. in english.

  2. Yeah, but did you skin it and cook it up for dinner over a fire you started yourself by rubbing two sticks together?!

  3. holy f***!! What kind of whale is that?

  4. And caught bare-handed, no less. Impressive. (Less so if it were real.)

  5. Neil didn’t need a bigger boat.

  6. photoshop is an amazing thing

  7. Neil, dahlink, I’m not so sure that after only a few weeks at the gym that you could hold such a large, uh, fish, up with one hand like that. hmmmm.

  8. So….Neil…apparentely you know what to do with that Photoshop — um, I mean FISHING equipment, after all!

  9. I’m, too sexy for my fish, too sexy for my fish…

  10. Look at those biceps!

  11. Hmmmm…. it looks like that fish is about to get revenge.

  12. Wait a minute, are you trying to tell us that you caught a giant fish but then got held up at gunpoint/camera-point by one of the roving photo-gangtas of the Berkshires?

    Wow. That happened to me once. It makes for quite the fish story.

    Hello, Neil.

  13. All you need is a slice of lemon–for your bellybutton.

  14. Hey look! A river runs through him!

  15. I’m so totally impressed I don’t know what to say.

  16. Emily is crying in her bouillabaisse now.

  17. that’s quite a catch…is that you walking on water, too?

  18. You captured the talking fish from spongebob squarepants!

  19. I think I’m just going to link to this for Fish Wednesday.

  20. is that really you??

  21. That’s me, with my pants rolled up, standing in the middle of the rugged Green River. And the fish made an excellent dinner, especially with the almondine sauce I created from the organic vegetables and nuts I grew myself in the backyard.

  22. Damn. Big. Fish.

    (and you’re adorable!)

  23. Backyard organic veggies my ass, now I know it’s a fish story.

  24. Cool. You’re learning Photoshop!

  25. Now what are you going to do with it?

  26. You know what they say about a man with a big fish…

  27. …yeah, like a jewish boy from Queens knows how to fish.

  28. Tuck, that is such an old stereotype. Who do you think catches all the gefilte fishes?

  29. Mmmmm half naked Neil. How about putting some of that in my frying pan.

  30. Wow, you’re officially the studliest dude I know.

  31. Nice job, he who photoshops a lot.

  32. What is the problem with you people? The first photo of me without my shirt on and ONLY Melissa is having a spontaneous orgasm? Melissa, that wins you “Blog Crush of the Day” for two days straight!

  33. I never said I wasn’t having a spontaneous orgasm…

  34. I am speechless at your fishing prowess. Not sure what you are fishing for, of course.

  35. boy the gym seems to have paid off.

  36. Organic vegetables you grew yourself in the backyard? In a week? Did you feed them veggies steroids or what?

  37. You DO look like Kirk!

  38. My, that’s a big fish you have there…

  39. Are you sure this picture hasn’t been altered…that fish looks a little, shall we say, FISHY. btw – it’s your intellecutal glasses that are the turn on

  40. My! It’s so big! I had no idea. If only it could talk…

  41. Is it just me, or does that photo look photoshopped?

    Grear catch, Neil…???


  42. I can only reiterate what everyone has already said. Nice catch. It’s interesting what we can do with ourselves with photoshop. I’d like to see you photoshop yourself into the new Superman role. Now Go!

  43. that’s hawt in so many ways i just can’t express myself in words.

  44. Ah, Neil – you keep revealing these hidden talents…
