« on: January 29, 2012, 05:37:31 PM »
Option 1

Something like this


Option 2
Brown Trout, Hooked her on a Shrimp Pattern, sinking tip, Tidal Pool. She Takes you to your backing twice. Your fishing a 9 wt, Fish is 30 inches long , You are fishing in June So She is a fresh sea run. Photograph and Release.




Thanks

Chris

 I chose the brookie as I never hooked one that big , but I will catch a brown that size and bigger some day so I have to shoot high .

Well said young buck and yes it is the brookie but my ultimate goal is Taimen and that is hopefully next year in Mongolia working out the details now...

this is a no brainer for me...brookie all the way...specially on dry fly!!!

grew up fishing brookies on dry fly so that probably explains it, mind you mine were, are or probably never been in that class of fish

No contest!  Brookie all the way.  As nice as that brown is, there's no comparison between catching a fish on the surface and catching a fish on the bottom.  Everybody dreams of catching a 25 inch brookie, not many do.  Beautiful fish Perry.  I certainly dream of going to Labrador one day as well.

Fishing is a matter of timing...  You have to be here yesterday.

Brookie for sure, my largest was a few inches smaller than the one you posted. Caught it in a lake in Cape Breton. It was the best trophy lake I have fished to date and not many knew about it when I started fishing it. Unfortianatly it's not the same today, there's still a few 2lbers caught in there, but the average is now pan size, it use to be 2.5Lb only 5 years ago.

Nice fish perry, I'd love to take a trip to Labrador some day.
