The T/A Brown Trout

Damn, I cant believe its been since May that I posted anything on the blog. I've got out a few times with Mike http://trouttripper.blogspot.com/ and instead of doing all the copying and pasting i thought I'd just throw the link from our last outing. Here is the entry from Mike on his blog. http://trouttripper.blogspot.com/2009/07/pat-m-makes-apperance_12.html Work this past summer has put a huge damper on the fishing this year and being that I've been working out of state the opportunities to get out have been slim. Anyways I hope I can get into the swing of things again and take advantage of the fall streamer fishing that is just around the corner. Here is a pattern that is probably not new to anyone if they have followed Kelly Galloup and his innovative streamer patterns. Instead of the T/A Rainbow Series I'd thought I'd come up with the T/A Brown Trout pattern which I'm hoping for some good result. As you can see I took some pictures of the materials that I used. The only think I did was I Incorporated the Brown Trout colors on the pattern. Its almost time for the throwing huge streamers and looking for big hungry trout as this time of year can be the best the year has to offer.
