Big Brown

Big Brown

One of our rods hooked a near double figure brown this week, he brought it to the bank three times before it snapped him.

So, bearing in mind that this fish was stocked at about two pounds, I have a dilemma.

If you catch it and it is in excellent condition please release it. However, if there is any problem at all with it (including heavy lice infestation) please dispatch it.
