Re: Christmas come early...
Thanks everyone! It took a lighter clown egg pattern I tie. I only use natural colors. Most fly tyers use yellow, but I rarely use anything too loud. Mostly, pinks, creams, oranges etc etc. I had originally she was a snag, until she slowly started to move out into the heavy current. I then thought she was an old king still in the river. I saw the square tail and thought, "There's no way that's a Brown Trout... it's too damn big." I am glad I was incorrect. I had to go through some scary rapids and water half way up my back, but it was well worth it. I will try and get all the photos and HD video into some kind of compilation on our youtube channel.
@ DiverDan... you don't have any good moving water by you?
@Rockriver... yep this gimongous female is still alive and swimming in the same river I caught her as far as I know.
