Had a nice hike up in the Brainard lakes region of IPWA. Water still nice and Icy cold up there. Nice fight and great color on this brown. Hope youíre all getting time in!

Nice hike up there it's been a few years since I've gone fishing there. You definitely have a pretty brook trout there and not a brown.

I want to ask you a question and I by no means intend this to be rude or insensitive, it is purely curiosity so please don't take offense to it, and if it does then I apologize. I've always been curious of the way people with different conditions experience things, such as your case with colorblindness.

For me one of the big factors in my decision of a "favorite fish" is color, which is why the Brooke is my favorite. I wanted to ask if you had a favorite fish and what sort of things determine your favorite fish?

I realize there are many different types of colorblindness and color could still be a factor in deciding. Again just pure genuine curiosity.

Thanks and Congrats on the catch!

Hey mxtsinclair, absolutely no offense taken. My favorite fish is the one on my hook, hahaha. Seriously that is a good question. I do see some colors but often see them ďwrongĒ like green looks brown, red looks green, I donít know Purple, everything in that spectrum is blue to me etc. So like for this fish, I could still tell it was pretty just donít see all the colors or the same way you would see them. Hope that helps and answers your question.

Forkin-Fish, thanks for the answer! That is pretty cool to hear, I love hearing how others experience things, it gives me a different perspective on things so many of us easily take for granted.

Thanks again!
