found this on PFBC site...

Fourteen inch brook trout, caught in Lost Creek in Juniata County. This fish had partially eaten an 18 inch garter snake! This aggressive fish bit on a minnow with the snake in his mouth!

Yeah, that's great. Next someone will be selling a snake pattern on a size 1 3x long dry hook. I guess you could lash some green rope on it. That's just a san juan sized up a bit.

Shademt,
I made a small edit to your title line so our readers will have an inkling of what the thread is about.

I once saw a brookie of large size swim up to a bank and take a frog. They are predators and will eat anything. A survey of the Schuylkill R. wild brookies showed that 90% of their diet was aphids, which are a dry fly of about a #99 that's how small they are. The same survey area showed another time frame they were eating millipedes. Those little brown 1 inch long segmented worms that have been on earth since before the dinosaurs.
One opening weekend, about ten years ago, one of the guys in our camp caught a brookie with a large hellbender in its guy.

its easy chaz get a magnifying glass a strong one and ties what ever color they are with a wee wee bit of dry fly dubbing whip finish and water proof but im sure thats purely optional or fished with a greased line lol and most likely superglued to the tippet ;)

I once caught a smallmouth with a plastic worm hanging out of it's mouth, or so I thought at first. Turned out to be a rat.

WOW! I've seen a snake eat a brookie but never the other way around. I have noticed (via trout regurgitating while being handled) that during years with 'wet' summers brookies in two streams I frequent eat LARGE salamanders. Experimenting I tied on a 6" rubber salamander my son uses for bass and...BANG first drift a big brookie nailed it. Used a wooley worm after that with the same result in several pools. Didn't work under different conditions but when I switched to a muddler, that did...as usual.

I wonder if the snake was alive or dead when eaten.

Caught a brookie on Columbia County's Fishing Creek one year that coughed up a newt as I was about to land it.

I always take frog patterns with me brookie fishing; since I saw 2 9" brookies fighting over one while my buddy and I stood over top of them. Obviously normally shy brookies aren't so when large food is around.
