I also have one painted up with a bit more of the"tell tale" signs of fresher water with just a hint of that cerise colored pink on its side and gill plates...actually the way I've caught these...

whats so interesting about this fish is just how many different ways it can appear in nature...from the silver bullets, to a much darker and almost blood red version...

I sorted through a few hundred pics for my reference research on this one...deciding to have three carvings in various color schemes...I had some of my own, but then realized when checking out others just how different a "steelhead" can be...even fin sizes and shapes...all stuff to make a sculptors job even more interesting!

I always come back tom that quote that can get me out of trouble..."art imitates life!"
