Trout Weathervane – Leaping

Trout Weather Vane (Oncorhynchus mykiss) Leaping


The Leaping Trout Weather Vane, Oncorhynchus mykiss, featured in this image consists of a copper fish and splash rings with brass grasses and a gold leafed bug. Because our vanes are custom made, the choice of metals can be modified at the time an order is placed.

If you are “hooked” on trout, you might be interested in our additional trout and salmon weathervanes and our fishing weathervane designs.

Most of the fish weathervanes we make here at West Coast Weather Vanes are made for sport anglers or as a gift from their spouses. Over the years, the Leaping Trout Weather Vane has been a popular gift, both for birthdays and Christmas. Included in the price of our weathervanes is a small personalized booklet with a color photograph of the weathervane selected placed inside the front cover. If the weathervane is a gift, the booklet can be prepared and sent out as soon as an order is placed. It can then be given to the recipient on the special occasion, with the made-to-order sculpture piece following as soon as it is completed.

Trout are closely related to salmon and char (or charr) and occur in the same genera as do trout (Oncorhynchus – Pacific salmon and trout, Salmo – Atlantic salmon and various trout, Salvelinus – char and trout). Most trout live in freshwater lakes and/or rivers exclusively, while there are others such as the Rainbow trout which may either live out their lives in freshwater, or spend two or three years at sea before returning to freshwater to spawn, a habit more typical of salmon. A rainbow trout that spends time in the ocean is called a steelhead.
