These colourful Trout vary in size from 3lb to 7lb on average, however the Trophy Fish can range from 8lb to 14lb and sometimes larger! On an average day one can expect to sight 10 to 12 fish, hook around 6 to 7 fish and land 3 to 4. Remembering this is an average and conditions depending, more or less Trout can be seen, hooked, and landed.

Targeting Trophy Fish, 8lb to 14lb, for those who enjoy the challenge,
one of these landed would be the ultimate Brown Trout Fly Fishing day with Paul van de Loo!
