Or: Who's hunting whom?

I wanted to show a fly fishing fly & a fish together in one photo.
The fly is an Elk Hair Caddis with a trailing shuck. It represents a sedge or caddis fly that has just emerged into its adult stage.
The fish is a brown trout that I caught (& released) from a small Alberta stream.
I put both photos together using PSE2.

This has impact because of the colours and dark bg, it is innovative and a great idea.
