On March 13th of this year, my husband, John and I were trout fishing at a nearby lake. This is something that we do often in the spring. This fishing day was different from all the rest. This was the day that I caught a very large rainbow trout. In fact, it was a full twenty five inches long and weighed seven pounds. I don't have to tell you that I had a hard time reeling it in. I got it in with the help of John and the fishing net. As you can see from the first photo, it was heavy. John just insisted that we have it mounted. I said no. I thought it is a very dumb thing to spend our money on. But, he wouldn't take no for an answer. After seven months, I received a phone call telling me that my trout was mounted and ready to be picked up. We picked it up today. It is now hanging on my living room wall for all to see.
Just look how proud I am!
