This week's Topwater Tuesday takes us north to the cold, clear waters of Ontario, Canada for some impressive brook trout on the fly.
Brook trout hold a special place in the hearts of many anglers. Unlike freshwater bass or even other species of trout, native brookies live only in the clearest, cleanest waterways. For many, the greatest reward of brook trout fishing is the places it brings you - small streams, remote rivers and deep mountain lakes. Once you catch one, you can't help but be awed by their beauty, brook trout flanks are nothing short of extraordinary with a breathtaking mixture of greens, blues and reds. But did you also know they're blood-lusting carnivores? Check out this video from The New Fly Fisher of huge brook trout ravaging topwater mice and flies.
