S3:E20 The Wonders of Brown Trout Fishing

Brown trout fishing is everywhere, mostly because the browns have taken over the American waters. Brought over to America in the 1800s, this European specie has thrived globally, even pushing out some native trout in the process. In this episode, we give a brief overview of the specie, tell a few stories, and offer a few takeaways on catching more fish.
