    Default A Fish of Many Colors

    In the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee, swimming in the blue green waters of my local reservoir lives a Fish of Many Colors.

    Now Sevierville Tennessee’s most famous entrepreneur and philanthropist wrote a song about a Coat of Many Colors that her momma made for her out of necessity, made with love , made with leftovers, scraps of rags, a kaleidoscopic patchwork of the colors of the rainbow and more it was. Well I believe that our Great Creator made this awesome little fish in that same pattern, taking all the shades of the rainbow and more from each species of fish that He painted, putting them together to make this Fish of Many colors.

    Browns, Bronze and Golds were forged from the Smallmouth.

    Black, Blue and Yellows, the Crappie did contribute to its smaller cousin.

    I see Orange and Gold on this Fish of Many Colors, so I am certain the Goldfish was called upon by the Ultimate Painter to contribute as well.

    Greens (with envy) we cannot forget the Largemouth Bass.

    Purples and Pinks, well I know those are the favorite colors of my grandchildren, are also dotted on this small and scrappy canvas.

    I was able to get into the shadow of these Old Hills and catch a few of the Fish of Many Colors this week. The best fish of the trip came in a little over 9in and is the biggest of 2022 so far.

    It’s not just in my pictures of catches, look at the other posts from all corners of this country….large or small, in my eyes this fish is the most attractive of any thing that swims in our fresh waters. Many fish came to the hand and camera this week, some came home for dinner but most were released. Be it with Cane poles, crickets, or finely laid sheets of graphite and super sharp hooks threaded with realistic plastic creatures, try to get out and catch these little jewels our Creator has provided. The Bluegill, the Fish of Many Colors.

    Ever since my dad taught me how to cast and wind a pole, the panfish have been my favorite fish to chase .
    Oh I’ve targeted many other species, including cold water trout to saltwater inshore fish , but my favorite have always been the bluegill and his cousins..
    Partly I believe has been the many different colors you can find them decorated in .
    They are an awesome fish .

    Well said Stan, and a very easy read. I too enjoy the varieties that grab our jigs and run the other way. Some of those in your pics I don’t believe we have down here, the colors are outstanding. I catch some that folks say they’ve never seen, like the dark purple CNBG that are common here. Thanks for the ride, it was a good one. From a beautiful part of the country.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.
