Admiring the Brown Trout
The known presence of large trout in the stream lends an interest to a day's fly-fishing quite unknown when the angler is whipping a stream from which nothing over a half-pound is to be taken. A stream inhabited by brown trout has always this interesting possibility, while, unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the great majority of streams in which are native trout alone. Personally the writer confesses to a genuine admiration for the brown troutówith the conviction that he is not alone in this opinion, and also with the knowledge that many anglers have no use whatever for the brown troutóand, while still maintaining that our native brook trout is an unrivaled game fish, he is willing to give the devil his due; in other words, to declare that the brown trout is a game fish worth any angler's consideration and skill.
