    Even a small fly will catch a big trout but for a big brown, a fly pattern that would look like a minnow or some kind of bait fish.

    It never hurts to ask at a local fly shop. However, if I were in your shoes and wanted larger trout, I would focus more on streamers than dry flies. Larger fish like larger sources of energy and, unless there is a great hatch going on, they will tend to go for the bigger meal.

    Good luck!

    Oh, just fyi if you are interested, for early season brookies, I like to use a small "leech" tied from wild turkey breast down. It makes a nice gray leech that works well in cold water conditions. If you don't hunt turkeys, check with one of your hunting friends and see if they will save the breast feathers for you.

    Im a brook trout fisherman. love em. we don't have Brown trout in the arrowhead region of Minnesota. but this fall we were going down to white water state park. Im not one to pass up good trout fishing, so if like to catch some trophy browns. I'd rather take one 22 inch fish than 10 12 inchers. streamers? large drys? ask at a local fly shop?

Welcome!
