Did a Little Fishing Today...

Is this a previously unknown species of trout? Is it the rare and elusive Eastern Speckled Dwarf Trout? I don't know. What I do know, however, is that I worked very, very hard to catch this, my only fish today. I will not publicly acknowledge how many hours I spent on the water today, but to give you some idea, the fish I'm holding in my hand in this late afternoon picture, had not yet been born when I parked my car at the river this morning. Still, I thought his coloring was nice, and I hope to see him again in a few years when he's a little larger than a bic lighter.

Ed! Pretty little guy. You really need to practice your wide angle lens work to make them look bigger.

Last month I caught a six inch fish, but through the miracle of perspective, turned him into an 18" rainbow.

Hell, turn up the color saturation a little, and you've got yourself a trophy Golden Trout.

Come on, get with the program...

Wouldn't it be easier to try and convince people that my hand, due to some rare genetic disorder, is the size of a serving platter?

Easier is just to say you were fishing with Andre the Giant that day.

Though that "hands the size of dinner platter" thing might get you some dates online...
