Fishing Guide Takes a Day Off, Ends up Wrestling a Brown Trout

A fly fishing guide makes a brown trout catch he’ll never forget in this video.

Matt Heron runs Matt Heron Fly Fishing, a guide service based in Lake Tahoe. During one of his days off, Heron and his friend went to one of Tahoe’s small rivers to fish and capture some video.

It’s a good thing they brought their video camera with them.

Heron caught a 30-inch brown trout that rivals the monster browns found in New Zealand’s streams and rivers.

The trout was so big that Heron nearly had to wrangle it like a cowboy would cattle.
