Nice J...pretty fish! Had some teeth in those black gums!

Walt's worm or slumpbuster?...ie. clear water or high muddy water?

You need some bamboo with that medalist, though!

David,

Sculpin.

This stream doesn't ever get muddy, since it's a true spring run.

I don't know if I'll ever get the bamboo bug, but the reel is there in case I do. It pairs nicely with my 4wt for now!

Regarding the teeth, I have a pretty nasty index finger from this guy. That'll show me to forget my hemos.

This is, by far, the largest wild brook trout I have ever caught.

Fantastic fish Jay. I hope to try a few places to get one 12"+ this year. That one looks to be well over that mark. Did you get a tape on him?

I'll have to measure from the base of the grip to those markings on the rod. He's over a foot for sure.

Haven't cared to measure the rod to see how big he was. I know he's the largest I've caught, and he darted out and smashed a streamer like a shark. Good enough for me. I'll see if I remember to estimate the measurement tonight.

Looking at it I say 12-13 inches. Hard to tell off a pic. The fish is a beauty to say the least and one Im sure Jay will remember for a lifetime.

Wonderful fish!
