Brook Trout caught by Joe Brown fishing on Tuesday November 13, 2012 at 22:31 near Budd Lake in Morris County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a In-Line Spinner

Tried nymphing with the fly rod but no luck. Grabbed my spinning rod for some last ditch casts. Hooked into this one just a few feet from where I was standing.

Conditions were good yesterday morning, Dennis. Rainy but not pouring. Just enough to deepen the water and give me the river all to myself. I seem to do better in the rain. I think I spook less fish when it's raining. Tomorrow, I'm going to try to fish the headwaters of the Musconetcong across the street from Lake Musconetcong in Stanhope. I let you know if it's a productive spot.

Ray, I think it was in the 16 to 17 inch ballpark. I have a mini tape measurer clipped to my net, but I threw her back before I remembered to use it. Definitely one of the larger trout I caught this year.

Angelo, two years ago I felt as inept with a spinning rod as I do now with the fly rod. I do enjoy fly fishing, though, as terrible as I am at it. Just need to put the hours on the water. By the way, Tom Rosenbauer from Orvis does a really great podcast on fly fishing that I just discovered. Highly recommend it!

Fly fishing is harder for trout, but never give up. Nice Trout Joe!
