Default Most beautiful fish 2017 contender

This fish is the reward for taking my shoes/socks off and wading a very very cold creek to get to a great looking run. Very cold day last weekend but the trout were smashing my bwo dry like it was a giant cheeseburger. I decided to throw on a little size 20 uv black hares ear as a dropper and BAM, this guy trucked it. I still can't get over the beauty in this wild GA rainbow.

What a reward for your efforts. Beautiful fish!
Need a gift idea? Wanna fish Yellowstone for $10?

Might be blasphemy but I think I prefer to catch the wild rainbows and browns more than the brookies. That's a beaut.

That's a beauty. I'm glad those wild ones are still biting well in this cold weather.
Hi my name is Charles and I'm a fishaholic.

Some days I'm the hook and some days I'm the fish.

The only way that puppy could look any more beautiful is if it was caked in corn flour!
