Well holy toledos Batman, I caught the same brown trout seven months apart!
I went fishing in my favorite creek today for the first time since trout open season here in Australia.
Caught a decent Brown Trout, landed it, took a few snaps then released. At the time I thought,
“This fish is quite similar in size to the one I landed last season.”
But surely that can’t be, what are the chances of catching the same fish as last season.
Once I got home and uploaded the photos to the computer I thought I’d check them against the old photos.
I carefully studdied the patterns of both sides, luckily I had pictures of both sides of the fish from last season.
The more I matched each pattern sequence of the fish I was becoming amazingly convinced that I had caught the exact same fish as last season!
Same fish, same fly, caught within 10 meters of the original location.
