Default Big brown trout

Yesterday I went over to a river I fish alot to try my luck. I got there early so I got a spot in the river to fish before everyone showed up and there was a large crowd there later in the day. I got in one of my favorite spots and I saw a big fish holding on the far bank. I started fishing and was catching some nice fish. The first good fish I caught was a 20 inch Rainbow. Then I caught a 22 inch Rainbow and I also caught a couple of 18-19 inch Browns. The big fish was still holding on the far bank and never moved. I then hooked into a good fish around 24-25 inches and it broke off taking my flies. I looked in my fly boxes and found red brassy fly I had tied up a couple of days ago and put it on. I casted 3 foot above that big fish that was holding on the far bank and it took my fly.

I fought it for about 15-20 mins. and got it into my net.

27 INCH BROWN

Great fish.

Makes the 20" brown I caught today look like a fingerling.

It did the death role when I set the hook and run 30 feet down river. It weighed around 7 to 8 pounds.
