Richard Bramble, one of the UK's finest watercolor artists, travelled the United States to observe these trout species in their environment. He captured the distinctive colors and markings of each trout species. The cutthroat trout, 'Oncorhynchus clarki', are indigenous to the Rocky Mountains, vary in appearance, but always have two red throat slashes. The scientific name is after Lewis and Clark's early explorations into the West. This piece is timeless, whether serving food to guests or for decoration. Dishwasher and microwave safe.
