Earlier this week my son caught this beautiful brown trout. It was 27 inches long, had a 16 inch girth, and weighed between 12 and 13 pounds. He caught it on a #2 Trixie the Hooker fly and took about 20 minutes to land the fish. The fish was brought home only in photos and carefully released. A fish like this is a rare treat these days. We now are stalking another even large brown trout.
