    So I let my guide buddy talk me into a short afternoon float on the blackfoot a few days ago, as it turns out I'm glad I did. We were throwing streamers hoping for a big brown or two. We did land a couple of nice browns but this guy stole the show. Released after a couple quick pics with no measurements, estimated 30-31" and 10#. He had a whitefish in his gullet that had to be every bit of 15". bull.jpg
