I was fishing the Little Lehigh today and picked up another Big Brownie. Used a slate drake with a bh hares hear trailer. Fished across and drifted down apicked up this 18 or 20" Brown. Measured my forearm and compared the fish to that to get a rough size.

noclue, you can stump the naysayers and just measure the point on your rod where that fish comes to.

For future reference you can also remember the measurement for the end of the light colored label past the handle, and from there it will be easy for you to tell if a fish is 2 inches bigger, 4 inches bigger, etc. It sounds like you aren't too concerned with numbers anyway, so good for you.

When I caught this fish I was more concerned about getting it back to water than getting a define measurement. I remembered a thread on hear that talked about using your forarm as a referance. My for arm from the tip of my middle finger is 18" to my elbow and this fish was about a inch or so past my elbow. Close enough for me!!
