That's a monster but I doubt it holds the record up there. Anybody?

Definitely the catch of a lifetime. That monster could eat the biggest brookie I've ever caught.

World Record Brook Trout was caught in the Nipigon River in Ontario Canada around 1916 before the river
was controlled by Hydro Dams and the fish was 14 lbs 15 oz.

By no means is a 5 lb Brookie these days not a Huge Rush and Congrads on a Fantastic Fish Trakndwg.

I went to Labrador with 5 friends, flew out of Goose Bay to a place called Crooks Lake we were the only camp on the lake and a good sized river ran out of the lake. That's where we fished most of the time. The only fish there were Brookies and Northerns and it was barbless hooks only and we were only allowed to bring one fish home. We ended up with 5 Brookies that were almost identical 24" and 6#'s and one 5#er. Paul De Angelo mounted mine before he left for Alaska and one of my friends made a glass case with oak trim to sit atop a custom made oak bookcase that I have. As yours was that was my trip of a lifetime having dreampt of monster Brookies since reading Field & Stream when I was a young man. I also caught a monster Northern on a fly rod in the lake trolling a large streamer fly. Congratulations on the beautiful Brookie.

Wow, Reminds me of my fly in trip in the adirondacks back about 25 years ago.  only a 15-20 minute flight, but it put us in the middle of nowhere.  caught tons of brookies up to about 3 lbs, with 3 super fish around 4 lbs. we went in right after ice out and roughed it for 4 days. packed up to be picked up by plane around 3pm and nothing.  it was snowing to hard for the plane to fly over the mountains, so we paddled back across the lake and setup camp again.  Got picked up next morning.  The only problem was, the cold snap shut the fish down last 2 days there.  Twice, we woke up with 2 inches of snow on the ground!!  But, we had a great time

Thanks

Any possibility you could  post a picture of the mount in the glass case. Just like to look at other mounts as this is what I do for a living.

Hey Taxid, this is the guy, paul deangelo.  He does some very good work, especially with salmonids.   His airbrush work is nothing short of spectacular.   I have three fish on the wall done by him.   Only thing I don't like is that with salmonids, he always tosses the real head and uses a fake.   Guess he really hates skinning trout and salmon heads....can't blame him  ;D

As a taxidermist that specializes in fish, I can tell you it's not really about "hating" the skinning of salmonid heads although skinning out the head of a fish is the most difficult part of skinning a fish.  It's about giving quality to the customer and to prevent getting a salmonid back from the customer in a year or two ozzing grease from the head.  Besides, if one uses the real head (which some taxidermists do) so much of the greasy cartilage has to be cut away and replaced with a filler you don't get much of the original head anyway. No shrinkage or distortion with a cast head either.

I only do this on trout and salmon. No problems with bass etc.
