don't know for sure this is from a stack of older pics but if your bummin because you don't have a pond full of these beauties don't hate on me I'm doin alright regardless check upcoming ALL giant browns and Tigers alblum then you can talk some more.
um, ok. you have a pond full of fat, hatchery bred browns. i live in montana, where there no shortage of wild browns, much less pond tripoids as you noted earlier. saw your additional photos, it appears that the star of the show also made an appearance while there was ice on the lake. i had no intentions of getting into a pissing match here pal, just pointing out the pictures.
you bet, and all the rivers here are so crowded you cant even cast fly fishing poles much less catch any fish in peace and quiet. enjoy your ponds! for future reference, if anyone post pictures of browns then you can bet i will comment on them because they are my passion. also, what is a "brownie button?"
