Upper Peninsula Brook Trout 2013
 
I hope everyone is having a great season on the fly. I have been busy beyond belief, but manage to get out on a regular basis. I used to fish 250-300 days a year, but now it's down to under 200. I know, I know... poor, poor me! Haha! I wanted to share a video I took of 2 days of native Brook Trout fly fishing highlights and a picture of my largest Brook Trout of my life. This is a monster male almost 18 inches in length with some real girth. I made this video BEFORE I landed this guy, but there's amazing footage nonetheless. I hope you enjoy it and tight lines!

Only in the U.P. We have some great fishing; but, the better the fishing gets, the worse the bugs get. Ticks are horrible this year, but they are basically harmless. Nice fish Jim.

Terrific! So glad you had your girl in it again it always reminds me of my 3 when they were small and doing the same. She is so poised Im sure you are very proud! You will always have someone special to fish with!
I know my 25 yr old just invited me down to her beach house to fly fish the surf with her! SO glad I brought her along back when she was small!

Great Vid,
You got some good looking fish on that outing. I also love the idea that you had your daughter with you. I bring my son often (7yrs), my little girl is now 5 which means she can start casting a fly rod this season. Thanks for sharing.

@mbchilton... thanks!

@ Rockriver... yeah the deer flies and mosquitoes were horrendous, but the fishing was fantastic. Thanks as well.

@theboz... that is such a terrific story. I hope someday my daughter and I will still be fly fishing together. That really warmed my heart to read your response.

@Cutthroat Leaders.... that's also great to hear! I love seeing parents taking kids out fishing. My daughter loves to fly fish, I'm sure yours will too.
