Asian Lenok Trout
Barbos con Mosca and it was a joy. Not only does it expand my resume as such but it also gives me a contact in the region for any future trip to fish those exotic corners of the world.
Hu?? What the duce is the Lenok?
The best answer is that it is a deep backwoods Asian trout similar to the brown trout in size and spots. It also is a trout with lineage. In some circles it is thought that this special trout could be the link between the Grayling and the trout. This also might be able to explain why some anglers refer to the Lenok as the Bonefish of the trout species. Regardless, the Lenok is a beautiful fish.
Hopefully I did them justice. Maybe someday I can get over there and compare my painting to the real thing. It felt good to put paint to paper again and I hope you all enjoy it. Thanks Dennis for the opportunity.
