German Brown Trout Sculpture

Concealed in the murky depths of the log jam, curled up in the black mud amongst the waterlogged cottenwood leaves lies the battle scarred 27" German brown trout (Salmo trutta). For years, this formidable dictator of the depths has faithfully maintained the vigil, protecting and defending his rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness within his marsh...a sacred sanctuary of absolute ownership. Suddenly...from out of the current, appears an unsuspecting and unwanted intruder. The naive juvenile, a young Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) has spied the stonefly nymphs that have settled to the bottom. With utter disregard for self safety and dangerous disrespect for elders, he attempts to feast upon another's bounty. The reaction is fast and brutal. Is this encounter merely the frightening experience of lesson learned...or the fatal act of trespass? In the aquatic world of real estate, one law stands etched in marble..."My home is not your home!" This big, bad German brown trout is the..."Legend of Phantom Marsh" $10,000.00
