Gaper alarm is sounding. "Fought it for almost an hour with 6x?" Give me a break. I feel bad for that poor brown trout. Probably took ten years to grow to that size and some jackass with a distended labia probably killed it for a picture. My buddy and I have caught dozens of browns topping 22" from that creek on 10# flouro P Line and had them in the net in under a minute with 6wts. There may not be a more unique and special fishery in the state, so next time you saddle up and ride into the desert, leave your purse at home and have some respect for the fish. What a joke.
