20.5" Brown Trout caught by Tim Fancher fishing on Wednesday June 10, 1998 at 17:30 near Delevan in Cattaraugus County, New York (NY), United States North America using a Black with yellow dots and gold spinner, size 4 a Spinnerbait by Panther Martin

Trust me, there is a stream where I posted the location. The story of this fish made the ordeal so worthwhile. I had the day off of work and was trying to cover a lot water. I came up to a deep pool with a large undercut bank so I casted and whacked this amazing Brown just over 20". To land the fish, I had to step into the stream and sank deep into the muck! It was June, so I was wearing shorts and Tevas. I cleaned all the muck off and continued fishing for several more hours. When I had enough, I walked to the car and noticed blood streaming from my underneath my sandal strap. HUGE LEECH just gorging himself on me! Remember the muck; when the leech attached to my foot, bacteria got into the wound that sent me to the emergency room two days later with a blood infection! Yup, this fish was definitely worth it!

More proof Timmy will do just about anything to catch a fish. Next time get a shot of the leech and the fish!

Good story, but I thought the ending should be... "and then I used the leech to bait my hook and as soon as it hit the water - BAM! - I got my personal best [insert fish here]" haha! We can laugh now since you lived to tell about it.
