Default Re: Brown Trout Pics

Monday was one of those days when a person just had to shake things up a bit and go fishing. I had to pretty much drag the young fellow out of bed at 11 am. He knows I don't like fishing in other peoples footprints so the hike was on.

My late father use to say that when you grow old all you have are your memories, take every opportunity to make some worth remembering. This day was one of those days.

Enough wind gusts to to send a hopper or two struggling in the current, light grey caddis and the odd stone fly skiddering on the surface, and a bunch of hungry trout eager to the fly. Several 18-22 inchers to the net and many more 12-18 inches.

Here is a couple of very special Browns made even most special having shared the day with my son. Both are well over 25 inches and more salmon like than trout. The young fellow was still smiling when we made it back to the truck after 10 pm by the light of the moon.
