Multiple areas? haha. ALL of the areas. They're not great pics for direct comparisons, but I didn't find anywhere that the spot patterns were different.

The two arcs of 3 and 4 spots respectively behind the eye is the giveaway


yup.

if one arc was the same you'd waver, but two ?

is that stocked ? or a wild stream ?

not that it makes a difference either way.


and kudos to you for a well executed play, net and release the first time, that meant you and others could catch that beauty again.

That section of stream isn't stocked but above and below it are. There are wild fish there too. I can't tell the difference myself yet.

Well, it is definitely the same net.

99.999% sure it is the same fish. Checked spot patternin numerous areas and all the same cept for one spot (and I do mean one spot) where it could be the angle or the foggy lens.

Nice trout - twice.

I just recently read in one of my flyfishing mags about identifying fish. Having the same spot pattern was the emphasis. The article was quite amazing, and when I opened your photos without reading the other comments I looked at the spot pattern.

So will this be logged in as a "trout caught" or "trout caught twice" in your logs?

The spot patterns above the point where the pectoral fin attaches to the body is not the same on both fish. A zebra cannot change its stripes, and neither can a trout change its spot.

Chaz, I respectfully disagree with you. I checked just about every spot in that area. Same. There are a couple that appear to be "missing" on the first pic, right at the edge of the gill plate. But it's just the angle, on close inspection they are there.

Not sure if that's the one that FD was talking about or not, but I checked almost all of the pattern and they match up.

I just disagree with Chaz. The two different angles do make it a bit challenging to compare. {Same fish, different day!}
