Rainbows. Catch a lot of them and they're great acrobats. I get a real thrill out of catching the occasional brown though....

Once again, Brown Trout at night. I went back to New York for a week and caught six over 20 inches in two nights. Public land heavily fished water. There is nothing like the feel of a large Brown aggressively taking a large Muddler Minnow at midnight.

Give a man a fish and you'll feed him for the day; Teach a man to tie flies and he'll pick up all the roadkill.

I voted for the Cutthroat. I love Yellowstone Cutts, the underdog of Western trout. I've caught a dozen over 20" in the Greater Yellowstone Area. I love their colors and the places they live! Southern App. brookies were a close second, followed by the ever common bows and browns. It honestly was a hard decision between them all. I fish for Browns and Bows most often, but cherish Cutts and Brookies on their native streams.

Brook trout, they are somewhat rare around here, I have only caught them out in Nova Scotia, so it makes them even more pursuitable here. Can't wait until brookie opener next spring

I voted brown, but mainly because I haven't caught / seen any of the 3 other salmonids commonly stocked in Ozz's cool water streams (rainbow, brook or atlantic salmon).

I did just read an article about Taimen though wub.gif

I voted browns, to me they are the most beautiful fish available in my country and my family owns a beautiful trout stream that I fish alot. Atlantic salmon is a fantastic fish but I rarely have the opportunity to fish for it. But no fish fights harder than a sea trout that has just entered the river from the sea. Credit must also go to the arctic char which can be really beautiful and a hard fighter.

I never was bitten by the Brookie bug, I prefer larger water and big nasty Brown trout
"Fly Fishing Is Not A Team Sport"----Tom McGuane

The fisherman now is one who defies society, who rips lips, who drains the pool, who takes no prisoners, who is not to be confused with the sissy with the creel and bamboo rod. Granted, he releases what he catches, but in some cases, he strips the quarry of its perilous soul before tossing it back in the water. What was once a trout – cold, hard, spotted and beautiful – becomes “number seven.”

Hi all,
I voted Rainbow trout as it was a rainbow that kindly swallowed my first self tied fly and my first fish on a fly rod!
How chuffed I was...
Best Regards to you all,
Feel free to watch my Fly-Tying Videos Here!
I only fish on days that end in Y

coho on the fly but there is one that should be there is the chum salmon. pound for pound they are fantastic fish to catch. they probably demolish more gear than any other salmon. eager to whatever lands in front of it, super aggressive and fights like there is no tomorrow.
