i fish the Pocono mountain area of PA and also Central PA near the "fishing creek". 10-15 inch trout here are the norm for the most part. not sure if its a big un for the area you were in but it is definatly a nice trout with great color. after every fishing trip i take (about 3 per week) most of the time there are no big 16+ inch fish. i think as fly fisherman we are more prone to savor the moment on the water. watching the hatches, studying the water and trying to become one with nature is my goal when i fish. and you gotta admit you feel pretty bad ass especially after you hunt a certain fish and get him to bite!
good job and great fish!!!!!
