well, with the slot limit, if i want that 16 inch brookie mount, i will go the LEGAL route. hopefully, in the tailwater environment, they will get to 20 inches and bigger. i expect the state record to be broken in the next 3-5 yrs, either from the clinch or the caney fork. but i still think 20 inch fish will be very rare.

I agree with you stik, I do not see a 20" brookie coming out of the Clinch. I can see a 16-18" fish, but 20" is awfully dang big for a brook trout. And alot depends on what strain was stocked as to whether genetically they can get that big.

A reproduction mount looks exactly like the fish you caught. More so then some sorry arse skin mount which in 10 years looks horrible. Not all are sorry arse, so don't get bent out of shape. Even if you kill the fish, a repro is still a better option IMO.

BTW someone said something about heritage: One of the great sportsmen of this country said "A gamefish is to valuable to only be caught once."


Too many fish to worry about that. I have no problem with anyone wanting to eat them, heck I do and could care less who it pisses off.

Brown trout reproduction done locally in Knoxville by a friend. This is his second brown. He did an incredible brookie, as well as unbelievable bass.

PS. Fish was caught 1992 on the North Fork White with a 4# tippet (5x), and a small fly. Released unharmed.

Chris. I don't think anybody cares how many you eat. (I know I kill the crap out of saltwater fish), but I do and I know you probably do as well stay within the slots and limits so that all can enjoy the resource. With local, state, and national budgets the way they are, fisheries and wildlife, and therefore raising trout, will be on the bottom of the list.

if you want to mount a fish you don't really need the fish... get a pic and measurements and have a replica made... it'll last longer and they look as real or even better than the real deal...

if you will read the rest of this thread, you will see my thoughts on this.
