    Default Awesome smoky mountain brown trout

    This summer I've been heading up to the park everyday in search of beautiful wild brown trout. I've caught several in the last few weeks. Last week I tied on a size 8 rubber legged tellico and on my first cast, I see a huge shadow come out of the depths to hammer my fly. After chasing this thing down and back up stream, I landed a beautiful 20" wild brown. My only regret was not throwing a dry fly out there seeing how high it rose to eat!

    You have to use a third party service like Photobucket. You upload the pics there and then post the link / address of the pic to the forum.

    Good Job Ben

    And I see you were smart enough to tape it

    I'm pretty sure I saw you on the way home from the park a few weeks ago. Not in the Accord but a Rav 4 or CRV or something. Was that you?
