A little background on that fish:
Caught by Tom Draher who is a friend of mine. Doesn't surprise me at all that he caught ANOTHER big fish. Tom is a very good fisherman.
The fish was 27 1/2" long. Caught on a fly called Don's Sculpin. The fly was originated by Don Douple (probably the most knowledgeable fisherman in the state). Before anyone gets their undies in a bunch, Tom was careful while handling it to not touch the gills of the fish. It was out of the water for only a few seconds and then released. That fish was caught this morning, almost directly behind the Little Lehigh Fly Shop. The water was off color - best conditions to catch a big brown during daylight hours down there.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. H. L. Mencken

Nice fish, it doesn't surprise me that there are fish in there like that, I've seen a few monsters myself upstream for that spot. Don will be proud to know that his sculpin works for people other than himself and me. I was with him the first time he used it, we caught a ton of big brook trout on it in the rain. Great pics of a great fish.
