Default Fish barf

Is it just me, or does anyone else get excited to hold and inspect a glob of fish puke?

Thought everyone would be interested to see the stomach contents of this fish. It was about a 13" rainbow below the weir on the Clinch. I took the pictures the first week of February, one of the weekends they decided to let us fish for a few hours. If I had to guess, I'd say the fish was eating fry (and somebody's night crawler), from the spawn which had occured recently. Maybe some dingus dumped out his minner bucket, but these really look like toddler trout. Also, notice the black fly, midge pupa and scud. He was also snacking on some didymo. I am predicing everyone and their grandma will start tying fry patterns and stack up below the weir, (but I tried that already and it didn't work.)
Warning: If you don't like stomach pumps or you feel they are unethical, then don't look.
