The Trout Bike is a 16 feet long by 5 feet high by 3 feet wide BROOK TROUT made of cardboard refrigerator boxes, paper mache' and old lawn chair parts, mounted on a bicycle. It is painted in the vivid colors and patterns of our native brook trout, using leftover house paint. It has a fully articulated body which "swims" convincingly. The rider crawls into the body of the trout, sits on the bicycle seat and grasps the handle bars, head protruding through a hole in the top of the fish, just forward of the dorsal fin. The trout bike can be pedaled and swerved to imitate a fish and delight people.
