Many of us recognize the Upper Grand River, ON as a class brown trout fishery that is ideal for fly anglers. Recently Vassilios Kontopidis and his friend Bulent were fly fishing when Bulent hooked a real surprise.
This is definitely a trophy Grand River, ON trophy brown to land on a fly.
Most anglers will fish anywhere from a #3 – #7 wt. fly rod with the appropriate WFF line with dry flies, nymphs and streamers. The Grand can warm up in the summer time and one of the keys to locating some of the larger browns is to find cold-water springs or deeper runs and pool that will hold the larger fish. Unless there’s a hatch happening, nymphs and streamers are always a good option.
