Guide Scott Feltrinelli, of Ontario Fly Outfitters, sent in this photo of a fine, unusual Great Lakes steelhead, along with a note:

No photo enhancements on this shot at all. Straight up photo of a Steelhead I caught on Thanksgiving Day. Check out the purple and lavender colors on this beauty. Released of course.

Have you seen colors like this in a steelhead before?
