IS HE MR. FISHING OR MR. AMERICA?

Remember the Johnny Cash song "A Boy Named Sue?" Meet Trout.

His new full name is Trout Fishing in America.

Judge Patrick McMahon thought the idea sounded fishy, but he signed papers Friday officially changing 17-year-old Peter Eastman Jr.'s name.

"This may cause you no end of trouble in your life," McMahon cautioned.

The youth said he wanted to name himself after Richard Brautigan's 1967 counterculture book, "Trout Fishing in America."
