This year has been so crummy so far. Might as well re-live the glory days of last year as I caught multiple largest wilds of all three species.
First up is the brookies:

11 3/4.

12 3/4 in the winter. Very pale but very much wild.

15 inches

Rainbows:

20 inches.

22 1/4. Atlantisbouy and J-man were with this day. Rare to catch a big wild when company is with.
Resized Image
26 inches. My largest Pa trout not from Erie.

The browns:

22 1/4. Second photo is for some folks who thought her fins were beat up and questioned she was wild. Her fins where as perfect as the rest of her.
Resized Image
24 3/4. Possibly my most impressive catch ever, caught from waters known to have some of the wariest trout that swim.
Gonna be hard to top last year, if not impossible how the year has started out.
But it wont be for lack of tryin'.

Squaretail once again confirms that he catches more large wild fish than most anyone else. Awesome pics. This whole thread is a brag. You just have more to brag about!

Afish, Brian, fred, and I finally put the measuring tape on my old TFO this weekend while looking at the pic I posted. 13".

Jay, I figured it was at least that big. Awesome fish none the less.

Squaretail - I've only had the privilege of fishing with you briefly in Erie a few years ago and after all that (even though I've seen all those pics before) I may be a bit intimidated to do it again lol.

BTW, I remember the thread when you caught that big brown and go back to gawk at it every once in a while. From where you caught it, it is def a fish of a lifetime.

I was hoping to get a fish at the JAM to post on here, but he snapped me off...

I had to add the middle brookie and middle rainbow to my Photobucket account today to post them. If theres not some kind of story or tale to go with a fish, I usually dont go through the bother to post them.
Dont be intimidated. Heres my secrets:
1.) Get to the water.
2.) Remember what you experience there.
3.) WHERE I LIVE.
4.) Never underestimate their intelligence. Their brain may be the size of a pea, but they only have to think about food, danger, and mating. So they're actually pretty darn smart at those three things.

Wanted to ask you at the jam but forgot..... What size tippet was it or did it break at the knot?

I was fishing 5x. It's quite possible it was a wind knot that broke, but there was no evidence of that. It was a pretty quick break off too, which makes me think that. I don't usually have fish break me off due to playing them incorrectly. But then again, I don't catch too many big fish minus steelhead (and I've landed them on 5x). I saw the fish rise several times, and it was def a good sized fish.

This is the largest wild brookie for which I have a photo and the pool from whence he came. He was taken in NEPA in Oct 2008 on a Stewart's black spider, as usual.

24.5" of wild brownie goodness from the deep hole next to the Southside Bowling Alley in Scranton, PA. I had to skim the used condoms and cigarette butts off the foam line before I fished the pool. It took a Branks' Blade Streamer in October.

I really pissed off the 2 guys fishing worms and Rapala's next to me. They drove all the way from Newton, NJ just to fish the Lacky. When I brought the fish to hand they said; "I thought flyfishing was just for fags" I retorted, "No, they built Newark especially for you ass-bags."

Here's my biggest wild brookie, about 11in. It kinda looks like a stocked fish, but I caught it in a small unstocked stream.

not sure how to count this one, caught him out of Big Spring just below the ditch back in the 90's. Not willing to say he's 100% wild, always thought there was chance of being a hatchery escapee.

Resized Image

This one I'm sure is wild, caught this year from Big Spring, 19-20".

Resized Image

This brookie, also from Big Spring many moons ago is probably my biggest native char, estimate 14".

Resized Image

Biggest brown, 19-20" from a 'brookie' stream, have tussled with similar sized browns on the Letort, but have yet to bring one to hand there.
