Spring Fever and Fly Fishing for Monster ‘Brown Noser’ Trout

I don’t know about you, but when I see the nose of a big trout break the surface as it feeds on tiny little bugs again and again, I get a rush of adrenaline and start stalking the feeding fish.

Hooking a big brown on a little midge — or even an ant, well, man, I just love it. Of course, watching somebody else do it when the spring weather is bad and the streams are running too high, well, that’s all right, too.

Of course, if you haven’t learned how to fly fish yourself, what’s stopping you? You can start with our “How to Get Started Fly Fishing” guide!

In the meantime, in this video clip, the guys from the Fishing with Ladin TV show offer up some brown trout action from the Owyhee River in Oregon.

Disclosure: Reviews and Gear Links:

In addition to Man Makes Fire buying gear for reviews and guides, gear manufacturers occasionally ship review units to Man Makes Fire. If we like it, we spend some quality time with the gear and review it, noting if it was provided to Man Makes Fire. After the review, we return it, give it away, or work on longer-term review follow-ups when applicable to reader interest.

We do not accept any gear in exchange for coverage. If we do not truly appreciate the gear, we don't write about it at all -- bad gear will fade into obscurity on its own if everyone ignores it. In addition, we focus on gear from reputable companies, reputable brands, and reputable retailers that we trust.

The gear links on Man Makes Fire are focused on what we are willing to recommend to our own family and friends. Many of our specific gear links connect to industry-standard affiliate advertising programs. When you buy something using the retail links in our guides and reviews, we may earn a small affiliate commission that helps pay for our work.

Basically, we deliver the advice and insight you need, you get the gear you want, and then everyone wins. Pretty straightforward.
