Fish of the Week: Big brown from Pike

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Here's a rare Fish of the Week from the fly fishing world.


North Sider Robert Knapp caught this 36-inch, 25-pound brown trout from the Pike in southeastern Wisconsin in mid-March. He was fishing a Woolly Bugger on 3x tippet.

That's a helluva fat-bellied brown, let alone catching it with a fly rod. i am very impressed.
