Default Your Most Beautiful Fish?

Posting to the recent "Highest Altitude" post by tbblom got me thinking...
What is the most beautiful fish you have ever caught. I tried looking for a similar post but couldn't find one so here it goes...I am sure there will be some biased opinions here, but these fish are what drive us to go to extremes to find them.
Mine is the Golden Trout of California. They're not very big but they are something special!

That is a cracker. While I've only caught a few, brook trout are my current favorite. An i like the Arctic Char, but its on my bucket list
Here's the first brookie I ever caught

Brookies are up there for me too! Fortunately my in-laws live in West Virginia so I get to bushwhack the mountain streams for them every time I go there.

I stopped taking pictures of most trout, and most fish in general. I had to run to the car to get the camera for this beauty.

Great fish, guys. That little golden is beautiful, I've yet to find one.

JP - that rainbow is a beauty, wow, I've never seen bow marked like that. Is that a common marking and coloration where you are?

well, I think brookies ready to spawn are the prettiest, but don't have any cool pics. My avatar photo is the best bow I've landed for overall beauty and fight. There have been bigger, but this fish was the best.

Not crazy about how I have this fish on the rocks, but it was an easy, fast recovery and release. A year later, almost to the day, this fish came to hand from the same lie:

We've got some great colors on our brook, brown and bows here in the south east. Maybe not the specifics your looking for but when thinking about the MOST beautiful....I've got to say, the first netted fish of the day (pick a day) always looks like a true darling to me.
