Letort Spring Run 9-7-13. Around 10:30am I arrived to lower letort. I started out throwing a Harvey beetle sz16 and was able to hook up into 2 nice browns of average size. I nipped off my beetle, put on my cress bug and headed toward my favorite hole near shady lane. After a few drifts I put on my polarized glasses for the sun was really bright. I'm glad I did, because now I could see a big brown deep on the bottom looking for trouble. I gave my pitch upstream at an angle, but I lost sight of my cress bug, at that moment I saw the big brute swim over a few inches and take something and at that moment I set the hook and he was on.... For 2 seconds and he got off.. My guess is that he was around 16-17 inches. After that I went downstream near middlesex and started throwing terrstrials again, but this time I put a on a Crowe beetle size 16. I slowly worked upstream and saw a few risers. The first one I got on the second cast, which was alittle 7incher. I approached a really nice bend in the stream where I saw about 5-6 rising fish. I started at the first one and hooked quickly into another beautiful brown of about 9-10inches. Again I had to change my fly because everytime a trout took that Crowe beetle, it pretty much destroys it, but I don't mind tying them. Quickly I got another sz16 on, and this cast was dead on at the bank and about 12 inches out, all of a sudden a huge brown that I didn't even see, swam over and took the fly without any hesitation. I was stunned that such a large trout was rising, for the one I was aiming at was only a 10-12incher. After a quick battle my 5x tippet held fine, I released a beauty brown of about 17-18inches. My biggest Letort Brown on a dry fly! After that it was time for lunch then the Breeches for some terretrial fishing and an evening white fly hatch.
