Omar _ the tale of a brown trout

Omar the brown _ Louis Cahill pic from Gink and Gasoline

His belly was fire orange, his fins olive and blue. His spots were big and chunky, beautifully spaced like mosaic tile, they cut a distinctive zig-zag line along his belly. An electric blue halo hovered on his temple, so bright it didn’t seem real. His tail was wide and powerful and there was that mouth. The killing maw with a huge hooked jaw. Like something Melville had devised. Teeth as sharp as broken glass. I was lucky I had him in the corner of the mouth. No tippet could stand those teeth.

A great read from Louis Cahill on the Gink and Gasoline blog about a special fish _ and a great way to start the week.  _ go read it.
