He started the day seeking pike, but ended up landing a monster of a brown trout.
A trophy brown trout is not easy to come by, but somehow this angler makes it look like a piece of cake. Watch this video and see the epic battle as this angler lands what can only be called a trophy brown trout.
As you just saw this guy was initially landing pike, but then things took a turn for the better when he reeled in that trophy brown trout.
Did you see that rod bend when the brown trout hit? It looked like it was going to bend in half, but the angler knew to set the hook and slowly fight the monster to shore.
This illustrates that even if your intending to hook one kind of fish, it's likely you'll entice a different one before the day is over. If you're lucky it will be a trophy brown trout like the one you just saw.
