Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
Hungry little fella.
That's about the average size that we used to catch in a tiny feeder stream up in the mountains. We would use a #14 or #16 with the barb filed off so that you could release them quickly. Sure are little cuties....... Thirty nine days to go until the opener........
There was a stream near where I used to live and they got up to about 8" at the largest. Most were around 6".
Shows that "beautiful" and "cute" can go together! and shows nature's artistry at the same time!
