    This original piece was done for me by wildlife artist Guy Jacobson http://www.rifflemiststudio.com/. It perfectly captures a special 17" coastal cutthroat trout that I had caught on the Kilchis river in Oregon last October and safely released.
    The rod is a 4 weight T&T Caenis taper built by Mike Hoffman of Tualatin, Oregon.....enjoy

    That is beautiful. I am from Tillamook and that brings back memories of many, many fish caught as a kid. Even a few on dad's bamboo fly rod.
    Thanks for sharing.
