Fish: Brook Trout

Beautiful Brookie

Got a late start but hiked to a local lake and caught this brookie. Gorgeous colors and just the one fish made the trip worthwhile. Well, ok it would have been a pretty great day even if I got skunked. Little guy is off and swimming with its friends again after the quick photo op.

While traipsing around, ran into and met Moosegoose. Fun to run into fellow fish explorer members.

Was a pleasure to meet you Alan and thanks for the tips.

thanks guys. Had to post the pic, because like Russian said, the colors are awesome.

Haven't caught a Brook trout since maybe 1998. Don't know if portend of things to come or if this is going to be MY year.

Been out 3 times, have only caught one fish each time. However, 2 of those times yielded the best 2 brown trout I've caught (little ones but bigger than anything before them) and now this brook! lol
