Brown Trout Fight
Purely as a sporting proposition the brown trout is a decided success. In other words, he puts up a good fight. There are marked differences, however, between the way a brown '" trout conducts himself when taking a fly and thereafter and the behavior of the native. Especially noteworthy is the fact that very often the brown trout will leap on a slack line. Artists who illustrate the sportsmen's periodicals are fond of picturing the brook trout leaping high in the air with all the ease and athletic ability of the small-mouthed black bass, the Atlantic salmon, or the tarpon, but the observant and experienced reader, although he may condone the matter as merely poetic or artistic license, knows full well that the thing is a pure nature fake.
