Default Trophy Brown at JB

What's up fellas,

I'm back in town from school and finally have had some time to get out on the water. I've fished JB 3 times since last Friday and the fishing has been incredible. Girdle bugs and soft hackles have been the ticket consistently while a dry dropper with a small emerger kills em in the slower pocket water. I had an awesome time today showing my buddy that's new to fly fishing around JB. He had landed several bows as the day was coming to an end and I decided to do a quick, last minute fly change. We were in a hole that literally every single person on the water that day had fished when my buddy "got snagged". This is the biggest brown I've seen pulled out of JB in a long time. He was released unharmed and lives to grow another day. I hope everyone enjoys the holiday and a great weekend of football.

Great fish! Especially at JB!

I knew they were out there. I had one break my 5x tippet off a couple of weeks ago right around that island... I was so surprised...

Congratulations!

Nice job, it's that time of year when you can get a good one coming off the spawn trying to restock the energy reserves.

There’s nothing secret about any part of the hooch man. I’m happy to share my experience so that others may be able to do the same. I’m hoping the general saltiness of your post has something to do with my UGA/GT score prediction for the weekend. Happy Thanksgiving

Congratulations to you and your friend.
Iím not sure if I love or hate posts like this where someone pulls such a nice fish out of such heavily fished waters. On one hand I think itís awesome that these guys could be lurking everywhere, but a little piece of me hates you for catching a fish Iíve drifted by countless times!
