I think I may be reposting these, but they're fish of a lifetime for me so it's worth reposting. All were released.
The first bow measured right at 25", didn't get a weight cause I wanted to let her go. Size 20 RS-2 on 5X. The picture just doesn't do that fish ANY justice. You can see how small my fingers look compared to the next few pics. This was truly a once in a lifetime fish.
The monster brown was taken on a fly I tie called Orange Sherbet. Size 14 custom hook on 4X. You can see the fly right in the corner of it's mouth.
The last pic is of a male brown that is ready to battle. HUGE tail, shoulders and kype jaw. A beautiful healthy brown trout from a good ecosystem. Size 16Orange Sherbet.
