On my third day fishing in Maine I landed a 14-inch wild brook trout. It was huge. Well, it was huge by my standards. The Mainers I fished with, though, laughed and told me to throw it back without taking any pictures. These seasoned trout anglers knew the secret: the brookies in Maine rivers and ponds are oversized brutes. Sure enough, the next day I landed a 4-pounder. That’s when the cameras started flashing. Here is a photo essay of that week in Maine at trout camp.

OL staffer Will Snyder spent a week fishing the many banner streams in Maine. He didn't catch any lobsta, but he and his compatriots landed some impressive trout. Check out this photo gallery with 11 pictures from the adventure.
