I picked brook only because there is no tiger trout listed. got to love that mean a$$ fish.


Tiger trout ain't a fish. It's the illegitimate offspring of two incompatible strangers who, waking up from a night of lovemaking, vowed never to, um, do "it" again. Just (75%) kidding.

I love the browns because they are so diverse. You can find them in most of the major trout streams and rivers. They are also a very hardy fish. They are (I think) more adaptable to climates than other trouts and chars. They seemingly can tolerate water warmer by a couple of degrees than other specimens. Many believed that browns were not a sporting fish when they were first introduced from Europe. Now that there are self sustaining populations in the great lakes region they provide a wonderful chance for trophy fish from fall to spring for river anglers, and through the summer on the lakes. They also fed upon the round gobies that are one of the latest invasive fishes from the ballist water of European ships. All in all, I give it to the browns. Hardy, well bred, good fighters, and lastly, good eating.


But don't forget the Brookies though...I'm from Pennsylvania and we only have a handful of streams with wild and native brook trout. They are beautiful fish anytime you catch them. Not to mention they are our state fish. rolleyes.gif although, aren't brook trout actually a species of char?

So my vote goes #1-Brown #2-Brook

"Fly-fishers are usually brain-workers in society. Along the banks of purling streams, beneath the shadows of umbrageous trees, or in the secluded nooks of charming lakes, they have ever been found, drinking deep of the invigorating forces of nature - giving rest and tone to over-taxed brains and wearied nerves - while gracefully wielding the supple rod, the invisible leader, and the fairy-like fly."
-by James A. Hensall, MD, 1855-

Size isnt everything you just need to know how to use it cool.gif Been fly fishing exclusively for 30 years and am always looking for new challenges. Plus, there are a lot of other species out there that are excellent gamefish.

Carp is disgusting! And most likely has traces of mercury and PBC, not good eats.
