Looks like a winner. A lot of times people post trout on here and say that the trout was 20 inches even though they never put a tape on it. I sit there and look at the fish and think to myself, "It's a nice trout but not 20 inches". I can see that your trout definitely qualifies as a bonafide 20 incher. Welcome to the DTA 20 INCH CLUB. What size shirt do you wear and what address do you want me to send the shirt to? ThumpUp



I just realized I'm still waiting for my shirt. Musta got hung up in the mail somewhere, huh Eddie?!?

pretty sure I got that net on sale at dicks for like $10, I added one of those magnetic releases to clip it to my back and never looked back. Not too big, not too small.

Give it a year of bushwhacking and the rubber starts to wear thru, and it becomes a hook magnet. I had to cut a 13" brookie out of mine after he rolled and got my hook in a rat's nest. Frame is perfect size though, and for 10 bucks I got a replacement basket on eBay that is much better.
