Word of the Day: truttaceus

What's "the word I'm thinking of"? Today, it's....

truttaceus [troo-TAY-shuss] (adjective) [TWITO, page 149]

Pertaining to or like a trout

"....crowded with the boats of paradise, we would fancy parades and serenades mid its roral gales, lepid glens and truttaceus charms...."
--Anonymous, in The New Rugbeian (1859)

A "chub" and a catfish -- those are the only types of fish I ever caught. And I threw them back. That's the kind of guy I am.
