On Tuesday arrangements were made to meet Brk Trt and RKM in the the late morning at one of Connecticut's Class 1 WTMA's . When I arrived Allen and Kirk were somewhere upstream and I decided to fish a very deep pool before moving up river in search of them. I was using a size 16 BHPT Soft Hackle and cast it into the head of this long pool. As I picked up the slack, the ling tightened and I was into a very large, solid wild brown. I landed the brown and as I struggled to get a nice photo I accidently hit the on off and button, shutting the camera off and the fish made good his escape. But a beauty for sure and one of the largest wild browns I have caught in this stream.
I walked upstream a bit and found Allen and Kirk, and they had done well taking a few wild browns.
We moved downstream to a section of the stream I had not fished before and under the tutelage of Brk Trt I managed to bring a few more wild browns to hand.
