Re: Embarrassing question
It's a Brown. Not a bad one either.
I'm not sure if you know this or not, being new to Trout, but they are not a very tough fish when it comes to being held out of the water. For the safety of the fish, keep it in the net, in the water till the camera is ready for the grip and grin shot. When everything is ready, hold it up like you have it, not vertical, and take one or at most two really fast shots. Try and keep it under 10 seconds out of the water. In Fact about 6 is as long as I would with a Trout.
There are some really tough species as far as surviving being held out of water. Trout are not one of them.
Congrats on a nice fish. For being new to it, you are off to a good start.
