Matt Heron was fly fishing near Lake Tahoe, California, when he hooked the trout of a lifetime.

What a fish.

The monster brown trout measures 30″ on the dot. After a few pics, he lets it go.

“I’m totally soaked,” Matt says, “and, uh, it was well worth it. I’ll take getting wet any day for a fish like that.”
