The iridescent rainbows of the abalone shell reflect colors like the ripples in the brook where this fish might call home. Lloyd Tsalabutie must be quite the fisherman because the details on this carving are spot on. With very fishy eyes of jet inlaid in gold lip shell this trout is about 3 5/8" long and 2 1/8" tall including the serpentine stone base that could be at the bottom of that mountain stream. We can hear it bubbling from here.
