i was enjoying some daily c&r for cutties yesterday havin a blast. i snagged up on a backcast and lost a fly so i stepped onto shore to tie up. as i was doing so, for reasons unknown, i looked down into the water to my right and almost jumped out of my wadders...

i saw a BLACK fish (looked like a TROUT) with a bit of yellow and white coloration on the fin tips, about 12 - 16 inches in length!! and it was floating BACKWARDS down current... it was alive too.

WTF DID I SEE!!!!??????? LOL.

ps. and no i wasnt trippin out.. i quit the drugs awhile ago thank you. :D

So you're saying it was a Northern Pikeminnow? How could it be black? They're usually olive or silver colored.
