I've decided to really push the hoppers hard since the warm water fishing has been kind of lacking. The last two days have been great! I caught my largest brown of the year today, somewhere between 21 and 22 inches in length. I've got a lot more pics and details on my blog.

You are, indeed, the man.

Those are some very fine fish! The brookies look like little tanks.
What was big was not the trout, but the chance. What was full was not my creel, but my memory.
