    Default Random Browns

    Now that we can all load pictures more easily I thought I'd start a thread on brown trout photos, I'm always eager to see what's being caught out there.

    Would be nice if theres a story behind the fish i.e. nice location, or something special about it etc. And no need to tell where caught if the poster wishes confidentiality.

    I'll start off with a picture from my own library;

    This is a brownie from the River Braan in Perthshire from last May. I didn't catch that one, my fishing buddy did, I just took the photo. It was caught on a size 16 olive klinkhammer. We were especially taken by its colour thus why I'm posting this one (no photoshopping, this is original pic).

    A nice brown from Missouri River, Montana. I caught it near Cascade in shallow water, took me well in to my backing in the first run.

    This is I think what they call a Slob Trout? a Brownie that is living in brackish water which I took last year at the bottom sea pool.
    The fella was is a crackin condition and did he go some. Took a bumble with a crash fished in the wave, it was intended for his Sea Trout Cousin but I wasnt complaining.

    Another good picture thread. I love 'em.

    In 2000 I took a year off work and went backpacking round the world, aged 50, with just a rucsac and a 6wt Shakespeare travel fly rod. After 4 months in Asia and Oz I arrived in NZ for a month and ended up staying 4.

    It was not a fishing trip but I fitted some in. Some great memories of catching wild fish - rainbows and browns. As with your first salmon, I shall never forget my first NZ wild brown.

    Spotted it in the narrow stream just left of my knee, cast a bushy dry fly over it three times til it slowly rose and took it.

    All the hostels were full that night but a kind local had offered us a bed so I presented the fish to her as a thank you. She invited us back that evening to eat the trout with her husband and friend. We sat on the sundeck and watched the sun go down on a glacier blue Lake Tekapo.

    PS The picture quality is not great. In 2000 the technology was 35mm transparency in my SLR and one of those compact cassette film cameras. So this is a scanned image from an old print. No affordable mobile phones then . Used internet cafes to keep in touch and phone cards to call home once a month. It was great to be completely out of touch and relax.

    Just testing guys. Last year I spent longer fishing a few wee trout flies for the browns. Had plenty of sea trout too when not really targeting them. This coming season I plan to fish more for the trout. In past I rarely if ever fished for them. We'll see what water levels are like this year if low again forget the salmon.
