COVER: THE BROWN TROUT

Photograph by Wallace Kirkland

"Finned dynamite" is how Cecil Heacox describes this dry fly favorite on page 42, and, judging by the dramatic photograph of Fisherman Lavant Egan, of Maple, Wis., shown here hooking a five-pounder, the brownie lives up to that description. To get the cover picture, Photographer Wallace Kirkland followed Egan as he fished his favorite holes in the Brule River in Wisconsin.
