I truly hate these kind of questions, I may see fish a little different than most of you, but I had to pick Brooktrout over the Browns.
I guess that comes from the fact that trying to catch a big Brookie is not an easy thing to do in the United States. I had a fantastic time many years ago when a client of mine envited me to fish his private water in Rhode Island, it was the Queen River and had never been stocked, ever!!!!To call this a river was saying a lot but remember Rhode Island is but a postage stamp compared to any other state. I had more fun that day catching fish right around 10 inches that kicked my ass,I had never seen Brooktrout as strong or as heavy for their size. My trophy for the day measure in at 13 inches and believe me a full 2 lbs.
So I just have to go with the most Beautiful of them all.
