my first brook trout ever!!!
 
This is my first brook trout ever. Caught from a spring creek in Dane county Wisconsin. Fish hit a grey scud behind a foam beetle. It was a tough creek to fish being extremely skinny and completely surrounded by tall grass and brush.

Way to go Blake!

That's my kind of creek, I used to ferret them out back east mainly because I could fish alone. There are never a bunch of people crowding around something that hard to fish.

Good job Blake. I know how you feel as I just caught my very first Brown a few weeks back.

There's a couple of brooks close to me that look alot like that one, and it makes me want to go out and try 'em.

Congrats Blake.
I also got my first Brookie ever two weeks ago from a meadow in the high Sierras. I was pretty excited.

Thanks everyone!!!

Hardyreels- I'm really enjoying the solitude, I've been fishing alot more by myself as of late. Nothing I hate more then a crowd, try the root river in wisconsin when salmon season starts. Shoulder to shoulder isn't for me!

Jimmie and jamieof- congrats to you too!!!
