Pictures of the Day: Tiger by the Tail

Tiger 2

A tiger trout is a cross between a brown and brook trout, and you can see elements of both.

The folks from Falcon’s Ledge sent me these cool pictures of angler Mike Hague, who battled some cold conditions and got into this large tiger trout. Spring is the best time of year to target these feisty predators, which are quite piscivorous (fish eaters) from an early age. They seem to be more willing to hunt for prey in shallower waters than many other trout subspecies are, making them an ideal fly-rod quarry.
