This was easily the most beautiful Brook trout I've ever had the pleasure of spending a moment with!! 5+lb's of pure beauty!!!
Few moments leave me speechless...but this was certainly one of them. Just a shame i had no one with me to properly photograph it.. as it was it was a quick shot and back in the water.
I'll never forget this fish 8)

Fly Fishing is like sex, when it's good, it's great and when it's bad, it's still pretty good.

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.

Nice brookies for sure, the island would be more doable for me. Maybe I'll have to plan a trip there sometime, LOL.

One of the reasons I'd like to go to labrador is I prefer fishing lakes for brookies. I've fished a few rivers for brookies in CB and caught some monster sea run, but I always want to go back to the lakes. I guess it's just because that's what I grew up doing.
Catch and Release fishing is a lot like golf. You don't have to eat the ball to have a good time

Hahaha,,, Chris I'am a Salmon man through and through. I honestly can't remember one day of my adult flyfishing life where i woke up wishing to catch a brook trout :P I'am not stupid.......i appreciate the fish i catch and like i said..this one left me with a feeling that is hard to describe....
All fish hooked, landed and released are special......but some from time to time absolutely blow you away!!!
No man,,, I'am a Salmon Chaser...till death do us part :P

He hit a version of the Super Spey Grub. I don't have a pic of this exact version but you can see it at the very end of this video. Trout and Salmon love the Grub!!
