Okay, it’s late winter in Wisconsin and there’s 24” of snow in the woods and along my stream banks. I’m 20 games into coaching my high school basketball team and I haven’t had time the last few days to get to the tying bench. However, the school that I work at has a group of students that will create things for people with photos on the item. They actually run a business at the school through the marketing program. I asked if they could take this trout skin pattern and make Coach Redwine a trout coffee mug. They said no problem. So here’s the skin photo of a Brookie I caught last fall that they are going to put on a mug for me. I can’t wait to see it. Us fly fishermen get excited about funny things sometimes, but I don’t care. I can’t wait for my new trout mug with skin from a Brookie I caught. ? Lol!
