Leinart, good job and a nice picture. When looking at the picture I recalled my first ever LR brown trout.
I packed up some camping gear and stayed in Elkmont campground, this was in 2002. First day out and not far from the campground I caught the brown on a Hare's ear nymph. I to carry a small camera and I eased the beauty upon the bank and took a photo next to my flyrod. I have a small photo album of fish I have caught, this picture is the first one I go to when folks want to see my pictures. I have pictures of largemouth and smallmouth in there, but this by far the smallest the prettiest fish in the album.

Take care and again, good job..... ;)

Thanks everyone for the kind words!

re: size. The Brown measured 13 and 63/64th inches. If I could have gotten him to exhale a little and straighten my measuring tape he would have hit exactly 14 inches even. I actually measured him with the tape extended beside him, but in my excitement I got too close and the picture is badly blurred. :(

re: cane rod. Yep! Nice of you to notice! That is my Earl Taylor 3 pc 7'9" 4/5 wt. SUGAR Cane! :)

re: fly. The Brown took a 16 BH Pheasant Tail. 6x tippet
