Not to be outdone by the huge brook trout in the Upper Connecticut River in New Hampshire, my native state of New Jersey produces some giant brook trout, too. Wherever he’s fishing in this photo also has some huge rainbows and browns. I grew up in New Jersey and fished for warm water species with my family, but I’ve never fished for trout there and have never fly fished there.
This will hopefully all be fixed in 2011. The Garden State has big brook trout. I suspected it. I hoped for it. Now I know. If that photo is from the south whatcha-ma-call-it, I think I can make my way there.
