S4:E48 Landing Larger Trout

Landing larger trout takes a different skill set than what most of us practice on a regular basis. It takes a different set of chops to net a 22-inch rainbow than it does to rip out a 10-inch brook trout. Most of us have lots of experience landing smaller fish and rare opportunities of landing larger trout. In this episode, we lament the monsters we’ve lost and offer up some practical advice to make sure you net the next big fish that you hook.
