    Hey CanoeFlyGuy

    A Great Catch! Question ? Do you change your methods when fishing for large fish like the one you just caught ? Or do you fish normal ?
    After fishing 40yrs. in the Park I,ve only hooked one brown, I would consider, over 20ins. I was fishing my normal way using a prince. I,ve caught several 15 to 17ins. fish so I,m not complaining ! Just Like to know!
    There is a way , BUT MAY NOT BE LEGAL, RIGHT!

    I know of two people who are able to find browns this size and Timmy Doyle is one of them. He is a great guide as these pictures are a testament.

    The problem isn't finding them. It's the sneakin' up that's tough. Most trophy hunters in the park will wait for stained water to go try out a big fish lair. Knowing what's there beforehand is the ticket.

    It looks like Chris and Tim stuck this fish in clear water and a high sun. Good job!

    We got lucky in the fact that I was able to sneak up on him, with out knowing it. I was fishing the far bank and was moving up stream when I spotted him. I yelled at Timmy is that a fish. Your darn right was his reply. Tim then proceeded to hook two flies onto a stick and throw them out to me. It seemed like it took ten minutes to thread and tie them on cause a was shaking so much. The fish took in about 8 casts with 4x tippet. A lot of luck played into it for sure. Tim selected the flies and I made to cast so I guess that counts for something. Fowler was right on cause we caught him at 12:30pm. I think all of the big fish are in feeding moods in anticipation of the upcoming months.

    Default Great fish

    Man that is one great fish!!! Thanks for all of the information. It will be a big help on future fishing trips. Once again that Brown is hugh. That is one of the biggest browns I have ever seen come from the Park.. I have seen some caught between 20 to 23.5 inches. But not that massive in body size. big Browns really get my blood pumping.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    May the Lord Bless you this day...

    What a brute! Wish I could have seen the drama play out. Catching the big boys like that is a whole differnet ball game. Thumbs up to you and Tim
