Default Your favorite species?

This seemed like the best place to put this, but I want to know your favorite species to pursue.

For trout, why did you choose that species over the other two?

My personal favorite are browns, they're prettier to me. Sure, brookies are spunkier but nothing is more gratifying than landing a brown.

How about just a "trout" category? As long as I'm catching trout I'm happy. Don't care whether its a rainbow, brown, brook, some strain of Cutt, Apache, etc just as long as its a trout... If I had to pick from the above just one fish that I would be limited to in the future, it would be browns...

usually browns. although, it can depend on where I'm fishing. When David and I were on the Gunnison, I was very much into the bows!

Fishing in the eastern US, there's nothing like being up in the mountains catching some beautiful brook trout

I voted for brookies, but wish bluegill would have been on the list. Honestly, bluegill and pumpkinseeds are my favorite fish to catch.

Pumpkinseeds - warm water brookies.

STRIPERS!!! You can catch a 20 inch trout or a 20 pound striper. Any species where the little guys are 4 to 6 pounders gets my vote.

I can't pick 'cause I don't care if it's a 15 pound steelhead or a 8 inch brook. But, I do prefer to be here at home in the backcountry, so... maybe brook?

I'd vote for an "All of the Above" category.

I always love to catch a lot of brook trout up in the mountains.
