I didn't want to post this until I talked with someone, but on Sunday I landed a nice pig of 20". Neighbor called me the night before and wanted his chance again at a nice one on 

Capps. So we headed down Sunday morning around 8 or so. Kind of cold again but not spitting out any snow or sleet this time around for us. I had a big black streamer looking jig on first and then I decided to change over to another one I had tied the night before. Olive and brown in color so to speak. On about the 4th or 5th cast I hooked into a nice one that I just knew had to be a nice big brown. Only caught one more rainbow the rest of the day.

This time we know for sure it is a different brown than the one that my neighbor caught. Completely different. So I know now of 2 nice browns in Capps! I think there probably more somewhere in that stream. Now I just wished they would protect them more.

I turned at least five that were eighteen inches or better. One was probably five pounds or better.  . . The big ones wouldnt completely commit to the streamer. Theyd wack it and then dart. The little ones hammered it. So did the rainbows.  One day ill wack one of those biggins like you Ollie lord of capps creek!
