17 inch Wild Brookie from Big Spring. That fish was the biggest wild brook trout I've ever seen in real life, let alone caught. Sorry about laying him on the bank, but I can assure you that he is healthy and waiting for another PA Fly fish member.

Awesome fish!
He's got both pelvic fins indicating a wild fish and not a leftover fingerling. Also note the clipped caudal indicating he's been surveyed. Most of the brookies in the heritage section have this. And finally, note the kink in the white forward edge of the ventral fin. This is also very common on larger brookies from BS and I suspect is merely a genetic anomoly that is perpetuating itself.
