    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.

    One of life's great memoriesmacaulay-browm-trout-jpg

    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.

    What a fantastic set of browns. All bigger than I normally catch up there. Well done
