This week's Topwater Tuesday takes us to a small stream in Northern California for a brown trout of a lifetime.
Thirty is a special number when it comes to brown trout fishing. The 30" club is an exclusive group, requiring often years of pursuit and of course, a bit of crazy good luck. Guide Matt Heron joined the 30" club in absolutely epic fashion with this mammoth brown trout from California.
Fishing with a tiny mayfly, Matt hooks this 30" cow with a sip dainty enough for a 8" brook trout. What happens next is the fight, fish (and net job) of a lifetime.
Looking to join the 30" club yourself? Here's the reel you need:
The Limitless 375 is the perfect reel for big brown trout. A massive 3.75” arbor, insane line capacity and over 11” of retrieve per revolution make the Limitless 375 the most impressive 5-7wt fly reel around. A fully sealed Gasket Drag System and integrated, torque-dispersing reel foot round out a feature set that will put any monster fish at your mercy. Click here to learn more.
