Four pound jack brown

A few days ago I scoped out a section of stream prior to guiding. Bamboo rodmaker Nick Taransky came along. We had some wonderful action on browns to around 4lb, as well as pocket rocket rainbows up to 1 1/2lb. The fish were active on hoppers, which are still around in good numbers in the high country.

Nick managed to capture a nice action sequence of me catching and releasing a beautiful jack brown. Click on the picture on the left (#4) for a closer look!
