Fish of the Month October Entry - Sutherland Brownie!


Another great start to the month as Octobers FOTM Competition gets going with this cracking wild Trout! Andy MacArthur was fishing in the Sutherland hills in a gale when this huge Brown Trout took his size 10 wet Daddy. He was using his Orvis 10' #5 weight rod, a floating line and Orvis Access reel and a bit of a struggle getting the fish into his scoop net. But his luck held and he measured the Trout at 29" long, before carefully returning the fish!
An awesome wild fish!
