You'd be surprised how many big Brookies there are in your Pa. streams. The fly shown is a #4 and I never used under a #6. People think the Brook Trout are all small perhaps because they usually fish to the risers or prospect with a dry fly. If you fish a feather wing like this one well around the boulders and brush / logs, there are some 11' - 14' specimens to find. Not a whole bunch but then they wouldn't be special if they were all big. Try Slate; Cedar; Hammersley Fork; and Fishing Creek in Clinton Co. for some larger ones.
