But those looking for monster browns may find they’re “wading a little deeper.” “‘They move here because we produce these astonishingly sized fish, and then they find out that “Oops, the river is over my head half the time,”‘ observed Fulton. ‘For a traveling guy it can be quite frustrating if they’re locked totally into wading. If they’re open-minded and willing to learn, they’re fine, ultimately.'” Fred Lowe in Arkansas’s Baxter Bulletin.
