My Best Brownie

Contributed by Marion Baldwin  (24.07.2008)

Caught this beautiful 17", 1lb 13oz brownie, yesterday morning (about 9.30) just upstream of Musgrave Bridge.  I had to take it - for one thing it put up a terrific fight and was exhausted when I eventually got it to the net, but also because it is the best fish I've caught on the river and we didn't have the camera with us.

This is my first season fishing after some lessons at Bessy Beck in the Autumn and I caught it on a small PTN variant tied by my husband.
