Default First Monster Brown

Hey all,

Caught my first "trophy" (don't like that term, but it conveys meaning, I guess) trout yesterday. Appx 22". West Branch Delaware. Wooly bugger. Sorry for the quality of the pic as I was alone at the time. My knees were shaking and my only objective was to get the beautiful wild brown back into the water.

Once again - thanks to everyone's advice and help along the way. My skills must be getting better.

Cheers!
Michael

She's right.

I think the blue on the fish's cheek is hot too.
