Catching this 3 pound Golden today made my year! Bringing it in was thrilling as I scaled down a cliff-like boulder which sheltered this powerhouse fish. I was as shocked as I was energized by the amazing color scheme on this specimen. It will be mounted for display at my home, Christian Boyer

Thanks for sharing your experience. It is very interesting. I sometimes wonder about the various colors of rainbows. The gold one is added to my wonder haha. Very beautiful fish

Thank you for your kind words. The Golden Trout I caught was quite rare in the river where I fish. The size of it is also rare, and I was able to see it swimming and racing around a large area before I could climb down off the crag I was on and net it. I had just started fishing when I caught it, and I left immediately after wrapping it in a towel that I soaked in the river. I will have it mounted even though I have a 24 inch Brown Trout in my freezer that I was saving for the taxidermist (it will have to wait). Christian Boyer

Yes, the pink tail is especially amazing! I was thrilled seeing it on display while the fish was in view. It was over 3 pounds, and had broken my 8 pound test line a week before.
