This beautiful 20 inch brown trout took a dry fly placed very tight against some overhanging alders. I was proud of that cast even before the trout smashed my fly. This brown is so vibrantly colored that as I caught glimpses during the fight I began to wonder if it was not a brown, but a monster brook trout. It turned out to be a very bright red/gold brown trout. The picture, fine as it is, doesn't do the trout justice.
