Brown trout vary as much in coloration as mutts in a dog kennel. You would have better luck producing a photo and getting someone to come up with a paint schedule for you.
This book has a brown trout paint schedual. I purchased mine from Van Dykes. other supply books also have them or maybe go direcly thru Breakthrough if you get that magazine.
a one size fits all brown trout paint schedule. I guess it's a start though. However if I painted all my brown trout the same I would be in deep doo doo. Hell I've taken them out of my trout pond of the same strain and closely related and there are different colors and spot patterns.
I have some underwater refrences of brown trout,with partial and full body shots if interested. Will sell for $5.00 plus shipping fron SC.
Let me say that Brown trout vary from North to South,East to West ,But,.In GERMANY, I use a Middle of the road paint schedule when I don't have a Pic,. E-Mail me if you want me to NET some and take Pics...MIke
