Photos: Sydney’s Green River Brook Trout

Thirteen-year-old Sydney Housinger sent us these great photos via Instagram because she was so excited by her catch. Fishing with her dad last week on the Green River–south of Asheville, North Carolina–Sydney laid into something very big. And when she brought it to hand, she was shocked to discover that what had eaten her Woolly Bugger was a 24-inch brook trout. Not bad for a young woman who just started fly fishing in March . . .

Sydney’s Woolly Bugger was stuck right where it should be.
