Default Re: It's weenie time

The tooth thing is nothing that I have ever read anywhere but the result of years of observation between wild strains of brown and brook trout (Native) where I grew up too. With the brown trout it was more evident than with the brookies but by the time a brook trout would reach 9" they had some real teeth on those jaws also. Here they all have a good mouthful. We have no brook trout but a north west relative, the Dolly Varden Char.

If you would like to pick up a very informative book about the brook trout get yourself a copy of "Brook Trout" by Nick Karas. His historical accounting of this wonderful species of char is great knowledge to take in. I thought I knew pretty much about them until I got my book from him. It was then that I decided I would need to go fish in Carmans' River on Long Island in order to have a well rounded brook trout experience. Did you know that Long Island New York used to be one of the most famous brook trout fisheries in America? I didn't till I read the book, you seem like a guy who enjoys knowing things and this may be right up your alley.
