Notes: 
I thought it would be fitting for my first lifelist entry/post to be the last fish I caught, which was a brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis). This is a native brook trout, which means the fish caught and the population its from has never been altered or stocked with brook trout from a hatchery or other stream. This brook trout in particular had a cataract - if thats the proper term for fish - over one of its eyes.
