Very nice to both fish and fly. That would work well on a spring creek I used to fish in Eastern WA. If you didn't fish size 20 or smaller, you went without a fish. When a small fish is 15 inches and a large one in the 25 to 30 inch range, blanking is something you didn't want to do.

Fantastic trout Wayne. Congratulations.

Thanks Ron and Ray. This brown was the largest of 7 trout that were all over 22 inches. Bows and Browns.

It looks like a bar of gold! Priceless...

Silly question. Is this a special breed of brown trout? The coloration looks like it would be a localized species of trout. At first I was wondering if this was a golden trout.

Just Brown trout. Here is the first one of the morning. About 10 inches.
