Bob Jacklin's 10-Pound Brown

June 23, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

Last Friday, West Yellowstone Fly Shop owner Bob Jacklin was demonstrating nymphing techniques for future viewers of a fly casting video when he hooked and landed a 10-pound brown trout on the Madison River. “‘I was doing a segment on the correct technique for nymph fishing with an indicator,’ Jacklin said. ‘I had a March Brown and a No. 14 Jacklin’s green rock worm caddis on. I cast right up into a small riffle. My indicator twitched, and I struck what felt like a really big fish.'” Of course Jacklin went fishless for the rest of the day except for two whitefish.
