I got my co-worker into trout fishing. A couple weeks a go I helped him land his personal best brook. A chunky 12" beauty. The smile says it all.


Nick was really craving a nice brown so I took him to Grass Creek after work. Sure enough, he hit a home run!


I'm so excited for Nick. He simply loves trout fishing. Prior to this season he mainly fished for flatheads.

You've wrecked his life. If you see him at work staring blankly into space, you'll know he's daydreaming about big brook trout or cannibal Browns. He's unlikely to be productive at work anytime soon: he'll be too busy checking this site obsessively.

Helluva way to start, with a brook trout like that and a true trophy brown. Everyone should have a coworker like you.

I love spoon feeding someone I know will keep my "secrets" to themselves. I dont do it often though because I have had it backfire on me in the past.
