Here's a picture of a big brown I caught just a couple days ago at a local hot spot. See more pictures and videos of my fishing endeavors at www.fishnflies.com

Nice big fish! Is that on a tailwater?

Far too many people in sight for my taste. I regularly trade in quality of fishing (either size or quantity) for solitude. Hard to argue with a 6 lb brown though.

Nice fish Tom.

Be that as it may how gratifying it is to pull a fish like that with a crowd in attendance.

When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

I would feel like BSD, that's for sure. To me, actually less gratifying than being in the middle of nowhere on my own or with a good friend. My thought process might not be normal though (generally, not only in this situation).

Nice Brown!
That is a serious crowd behind you. Hope y'all were all friends.

I'm pretty sure this picture was taken in one of the many spring creeks in Missouri that are 100% put and take. Most of them have hatcheries located right on the spring creek and they are stocked very frequently. I know a fellow from MO who told me about them and he said they are always crowded and there is not very much in the way of rising trout.

These spring creeks are actually called "Trout Parks". Does that kind of give you an idea it isn't very natural??

Isn't this true of most stocked fish?

I even remember Kurt commenting on the board that wild steelhead have a greater propensity to rise in the water column than their hatchery brethren.

Hello Kyle,

Not at all. If the stream in which hatchery fish are stocked has good numbers of aquatic insects once the hatchery fish become acclimated to that environment they will rise as freely as wild fish.
