Wild little hybrid trout
This is called a Tiger Trout, I believe. Caught this little guy in a creek near the blue ridge parkway this summer. I have never seen anything like it but I am told it is a hybrid of Brook and Brown trout. It had some interesting colors, with red-tipped fins and a little butter yellow on its belly. Pretty little thing. Too bad they are sterile, so I probably won't ever catch another.
