Yeah, and he bonked that one. Still can't believe that.
Totally legal, and the fish didn't have much time left in the river either.
Yeah yeah, I know the rules but he had it on film. Let the fish go.
:ray1:I would like to bring to light the fact that the title of the article is misleading....it says "14lb Madison Brown" and clearly the article says the fish was 13.9lbs:ray1:.....hmm something fishy going on here:rofl::rofl: Just joking...what a fish!! Epic i believe is the term coined by my generation.. EPIC!
Crap ohhh dear!!! That is a slab!! I think I would still be shaking.
wow, i feel the jealousy coursing through my veins.........
scoones needs to put this one on homepage rotation!
I lived in Bozeman for 2 years and fished the Madison almost exclusively for big browns in the Fall. It is funny because I tell people I got an 8 pounder and they always think I am full of it.
I would see a fish in the 10 pound range follow my fly every few trips and it was always a heart stopper. I would swing and strip huge flies and pretty much use steelhead gear since that was what I was used to on my home waters. These huge fish would follow the fly like a menace and than pass on the end of the swing almost every time.
That 8 pounder was the biggest I got but I saw bigger with a regularity, it is just getting them to bite that is nearly impossible.
The Madison is truly a legendary river and any flyfisherman MUST fish it at some point in their life.
And a tip, leave those small flies at home if you want to see what this river has to offer above all the rest.
And another, find the bigger deeper pools (ignore all the little pockets everywhere).
So cool. A fish of a lifetime. Is it going to get mounted?.
Hah! That's a shaker. Can't believe he bothered to land it. I'd have cut my leader in disgust.
Mark, truly epic, truly epic.
Hell Ya! Way to go man!!
awsome just awsome!
I have fished that same spot through Q lake many times. Nice fish, never seen anything near that big though.
