Lake Run Brown Trout Highlights from 2012 HD Video
 
Fly fishing highlight video of Lake Run Brown Trout in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Filmed by James Pryal. All of these fish were caught over a few hour span, all on streamers. The biggest fish was 34 inches, Over 20 pounds. All fish were released unharmed.

I've got to be honest here; you took fish that magnificent and treated them that way??????

I watched the film clip and cringed.

I will try to be as blunt but courteous as possible. Fred, these fish were caught netted, quickly photoed/videoed and released unharmed. I run into this rarely but some people are proponents and advocates of rivers they never fished, places they have never visited and judge scenes and events they were not a part of. I appreciate your concern, but these fish were unharmed. Maybe you never caught a monster trout and wanted to take a quick and short video of it. Also, you maybe didn't notice the gentle release of him in the video. You are entitled to your opinion and I will take into consideration your complaint. Once again... you were not here... you have nothing to complain about. Having studying fish biology and being a fly fishing guide, I can assure you that. Thanks again and I hope to see some of your fishing photos/videos so someone can scrutinize your achievements.

Excellent reply Jim. I've seen fish handled a lot, and I saw nothing in your videos that would lead me to believe that the fish were injured in any way.

Frankly, I read Evans reply and cringed. It always ruins my morning when someone pisses on some elses fun. Get a life.

Great fish for sure...but I'm kinda with Fred; someone once told me taking a played fish out of water is like having your head held under water after running a marathon :eek:
