Two Minute Brown

by Ashton Chatelain
(Bluffdale, Utah)

My sweetheart and I spent a half day in the Uinta National Forest. I took a couple of minutes after lunch to catch a brown trout on this blue fly. The fly is made from dubbed clippings from the TenkaraBum yarn, and was taken on its first pass over the fish.

As soon as my line arrives I will be tying up some blue flys and the game will be on :) I have my eye on the prize for smallest fish! I already have some uber small hooks and a spot in mind filled with some super small creek chubs.

In lead for "most"

Ashton, you're now in the lead for "most" fish after already having won "first" fish. Come to think of it, you're leading for "largest" and "smallest" also!

Nice fly, by the way.

Keep up the good work!

Best regards,

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
