I thought this photograph honored the beauty of large wild brook trout in Pennsylvania's southern limestone spring creeks. I took this photo in late February after a good friend landed this nice male on a small nymph pattern. .
Pulled like a freight train even after his spring spawn was complete. He was a fighter, look at those battle/breeding wounds. Caught him (after a friend cast 3 times with his conventional gear to the hole) on my first cast with the fly.
