    Easky - hover your mouse over the thumbnail and you'll get the details.... it's 15lbs 1oz, until I did that I was going to suggest around 13lbs.

    A cracking trout Where was it caught?

    Yes, 15lb 1oz. Got it at a small water fishery in W Sussex called Chalk Springs. Farmed fish i know, but those big browns take a lot of catching! that one actually jumped clean out of the water twice during the fight

    here's another, from Lechlade in Gloucester 15lb 6oz. I love these browns almost as much as the salmon.!

    Thumbs up Brownies!

    I'm similarly inflicted with a love of Brown Trout.... my avatar is a 6lb 4oz fish taken from the River Don

    That's a hell of a wildie! a real thing of beauty!

    best one i had this year, not a wild fish sadly, was 3 days out of season. it was a fish i'd been trying for for most of the season and hooked briefly in early Sept. he finally took on THE most wet and miserable day, out of nowhere (when i'd been stalking him all year) It was Nov 3rd, so back he went unweighed, but had to be 18-20lb and fought solidly for nearly 40 mins. (on a 7 weight) Ive got a photo, but for some reason cant post it as it says it's too big, or too many pixels or some other computer incomprehensible stuff.!

    Easily rectified.... copy the picture (don't do it to the original!) then right click on the copy and click on "edit".

    The picture will then open in a new window.

    You can resize the picture by going to 'image' and go to 'stretch/skew'. Reduce the sizes to 50% and that should be enough... you can play to your hearts content then

    Default Thanks Betanut!

    See if it fits now... the fight from this fish was incredible. Swam off strongly thought after a while which was great to see.

    taken on a camera phone and not the best picture... but tipped the scales at just over 18lb and safely returned!
