Last Saturday, Dan Kupiac of Farmington, Connecticut, was fishing the Salmon River with guide Dave Barber when something special happened. Dan was high-sticking a nymph through the same slot for 10 minutes, convinced that there was a big fish there. He was right, but even he had never imagined the fish would be so big. In fact, it was his largest brown trout ever: 35 inches long and 20.5 pounds! Barber called it “the largest brown I’ve seen in years!”
