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
