The fur-bearing trout (or furry trout) is a fictional creature native to the northern regions of North America, particularly Canada, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and the Great Lakes. The basic claim (or tall tale) is that the waters of lakes and rivers in the area are so cold that a species of trout has evolved which grows a thick coat of fur to maintain its body heat. Another theory says that it is due to four jugs of hair tonic being spilled into the Arkansas River.
This sign is hand printed on wood with a 1930’s design! Even though it was made recently, the wood and the design give it a rustic, vintage look. It has a picture of a grizzly bear on the front with Yellowstone National Park written across the top, complete with the year the park was established. Looks great in any cabin or rec room!
