A note from Shawna Solar:
“This was my first ever tiger trout on the fly and I was pumped that it was a stunning male full of colors. As I was about to take a quick photo, I heard this thrashing beside the boat.
To my surprise this mink was aggressively climbing the net and trying to get in and scoop my fish! I was a little nervous as you can tell by my voice!”
“I wanted a picture with the tiger trout before this thing took it so it was me versus him and I shook a little more aggressively to get him loose off of the net. The tiger trout was released safely!”
