Here’s a rare look at a big brown trout (23 inches, 4+ lbs.) hunting in extremely thin water. The cant of his eye and downward tilting body posture indicate that he’s studying the river bottom, likely looking for a potential prey item. This intense focus is one factor that allowed me such an intimate approach. Another is that I heeded the advice in the previous blog post, crouching low and remaining motionless as the fish drew near.
