This rainbow trout is a close copy of the other trout but with more detail. I 'm trying to get a true color with rich highlights of the trout with new watercolors I ordered. They have more pigment in the color of the paint, which leaves the painting with a more realistic look. As a young girl I would watch my father make these flies with bright green and red colors this fly was painted from a memory from my childhood.
