While fishing the Provo River, guide Greg Randall landed this 16-inch brown trout. When he reached down to unhook it, the fish yacked up this little guy! Even with this monstrosity in his mouth, he was still trying to eat pmd emergers. I was kind of surprised that a 16-inch fish would swallow something this big, but I’ve seen it with my own eyes now.
