The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large brown trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.

27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.
Troutnut is a project started in 2003 by salmonid ecologist Jason "Troutnut" Neuswanger to help anglers and fly tyers unabashedly embrace the entomological side of the sport. Learn more about Troutnut or support the project for an enhanced experience here.

Little Joe and his first trout, caught in Gatlinburg TN.
Picture of myself, right before I slipped and fell in that beautiful pool.
No, I wasn't joking...  I fell in the pool.  It's my own fault for not wearing my hip boots at least.  I just couldn't resist that pool.  We were sight seeing in the Mtns and I had to fish that pool.  Drove around with a wet ass the rest of the day.  It was worth it though!
Interlochen, Michigan

Tennessee sure is a beautiful state. I can't wait to get back there and do some serious fishing.
I'll see you down on the river...
