Brown Trout Leaping
The brook trout, unless fairly yanked from the water by too strenuous rod work, so seldom that one can almost say positively never leaps from the water. In rare instances he may leap upon a slack line, but the general rule is quite the other way. The brook trout does not belong to that class of game fishes which may be called the leapers, but the brown trout may rightly be thus classified. The leap of the brown in the effort to rid himself of the hook is very much like that of the black bass, a spectacular and vicious shaking of the entire body in the air. I once struck a good rise of brown trout, taking six in almost that number of casts, running from a half to one pound, and every one of them jumped one or more times.
