Just want to share a pic of a nice 1lb 4oz Brownie out of a canal.
Tried everything in the box for a hour at some fish i could see swimming past and the followed alot but always turned away so i put on a size 10 longshank goldhead lure with a black maribu and flash tail, black perl fritz body and gold bead for the head.
after 4 or 5 casts and stripping the fly across this fishes mouth he finally decided to swallow it
Nice fight too
9ft 6 rod 6wt line

Well done, Chris! Nice looking fish too, a bit different from the brown trout we have here in North America, which I believe are primarily transplanted from Germany and Scotland. You folks on the "other side of the pond" have a much greater diversity of brown trout. Though, we make up for it out west with a wide variety of subspecies and races of cutthroat and rainbow trout. Keep showing us what you catch!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Nice! When they are cruising it can be tough to cover them. Getting them to chase, if they will, is a good idea. WTG!

Iv been fly fishing other parts of europe but im set on fly fishing some of the ledgendary spots in the u.s.

Il upload some of the places im blessed to fish over here

They just seemed to be sunbathing that day paul and when they do that i always found it best to play on there instinct to just grab something passing rather then try match flys they wernt even bothered to take... seems to work for me :)
