Snake River Cutthroat

Probably not a big deal, but this is the first Snake River Cutthroat I’ve seen up close and personal (i.e. recently on the end of my fly line).

Didn’t take much time setting up this photo (which is a good thing if you’re a fish)

Up close and personal – note the bright yellow body and distinctive orange fins

Beautiful, and headed home

No comment on the rest of the weekend’s fishing, which should tell you something.

What a beautiful fish. Who cares if the rest of it was a shutout.

Who said it was a shutout?

Later in the day I headed up the highway, and my favorite stop had just stocked up on their gourmet sandwiches!
