Brown Trout Supreme

Not once have I ever heard a fellow fly fisherman utter the words, “Oh, it’s just another brown.”  Even small browns are a treat.  Larger browns are a prized possession. Many sleepless nights have consumed my time; time spent searching for a single fish that only comes out to feed in the still of the night.  Brown trout reign supreme in the eyes of many anglers and have rightfully earned that standing.  Despite their voracious nature, they are also extremely wary, offering a challenge to any who are willing to accept.  The past few weeks have offered many exciting opportunities to fish for browns and my friends and I have not been disappointed.

    Nice Eastern Idaho fish! We have some nice fish in town, but I believe cutting brush for tubers and storm drain discharge has damaged a surprising urban fishery. If I want big browns though a neighboring state offers them in sizes like yours but also crowds you don’t deal with, I don’t think. Be thankful you are where you are. Nice pictures!
