Picture of the Day: Huge Argentina Brown Trout

Challquen Rainbow

It’s not the greatest photo, but ai-yai-yai what a trout.

Larry Isham from Challhuaquen Lodge sent us this photo, along with the story behind it. Apparently, Markus K. was fishing from a boat on the FutaleufĂș River right in front of the lodge, and he made a long cast with a Woolly Bugger under some willows on the bank. This beast took the fly on a dead drift, and put his 3X tippet to the test. The fish measured 32.5 inches and weighed in at 15.5 pounds. That explains the wide grins, methinks.
