Colors change dramatically as spawning time approaches. Ocean-going brook trout become silvery and actually lose some of their distinctive colors, although the red spots remain. Brook trout revert back to their original colors when coming back into freshwater.

"Many go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after." ~ Henry David Thoreau A buddy of mine who is not a hardcore fisherman but a hardcore photographer has been hounding me to take him to the Crystal Mill for a little while now.

This is my current boat. The name i chose for it was Dawgman. I had a nice decal made and everything but my wife really like the name of the other boat i sold that was named after her. But as i got ready to put the Dawgman decal on some wind blew it and it folded up ruining it. So then i took out the Zulu Queen decal and that's how it took the name of the former boat. well my wife is happy about i
