    Here are some pictures from my attempts at catching monster browns this fall. Biggest was about 22", so my quest for that 5-10-pounder continues. Pics are from a few trips around western Montana, from the last couple of weeks:

    That's Hareline UV Polar Chenille. Skip gluing those big (and virtually un-castable) coneheads on and that's one quick and easy streamer.

    Hey Kyle,

    Just thought I'd add a little fuel to your fire... Here's a little brown I picked up last year near our cabin in MT. Enjoy, and good luck with your quest.

    Rick

    Your flies need to get bigger; check out Galloup's web site, dude knows a thing or two about big browns.
