Look like Brown trout, but the two bottom ones could be Salmon Parr. I used to do a lot of Trout fishing as a kid on my holidays in Ireland and was often told the "trout" I had caught were Salmon Parr, but they all looked like Trout to me.

Cheers folks - I always assumed they were all brownies but I was hoping you'd all say the bottom one was a salmon :D

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

the second one is niiiice! did you weigh it?

 

Ta - I am very pleased with that one, probably the best looking trout I've ever caught! It was on a mayfly nymph cast upstream (I could see it feeding near the surface). I didn't weigh it, I was keen to get it back asap, but I would guess about 2lb.

 

The blob of floating putty is cheating a bit, but the upstream nymph is hard!

Supper; probably tea as well depending on your location.

 

Look like brown trout to me. Some look like recently stocked ones and some look more natural from the state of the tails, but other than that they look like a good range of the natural colour variations within brown trout.

I've never fly fished in my life but I hope I will soon. Next season for sure.

 

But should I be a classicist and adopt upsteam dry fly tactics or adopt that darn Skues minor chalk stream tactics as adopted by Anderoo? Nymphs :unsure:

 

With putty :unsure:

 

Dry fly purist Halford would turn in his grave...

 

Coolio fish or fishes though!

 

And definitely brownies. I fish the Kennet and Hampshire Avon regularly with coarse fishing tactics and though a slightly different tinge, these all look like the brownies that regularly fall hook, line and sinker for my maggot bait. It makes you understand why the 19th century gentlemen came up with the art of fluff chucking such that the olde trout got a sporting chance. :)

 

Nice fish or fishes mate. And well angled. :)

Joining in a little, late - these are all brown trout. The variation is normal, but I find that the chalk stream fish (which these are) which are buttery brown tend to be the truly wild stock with the local genotype of pattern. The mroe silvery ones (generally) are stocked and often triploid. I draw this conclusion from catching lots of chalk strem fish and noticed that the smaller ones which wouldn't have been stocked were nearly always buttery brown. The silvery ones I would say are a different strain - most likely stocked.

 

They may subsequently spawn (unless they were triploids) and therefore their progeny are more silvery. The loss of natural genoptye is why the Wild Trout Trust are encouraging natural regeneration of trout streams rather than stocking.

 

That said brownies are very variable!

 

Nice fish, must go there sometime ;)

Try a stillwater first - DON'T try to upstream nymph or dry fly without learning the basics! But it is a great way of catching trout and grayling.

 

I've introduced people to fly fissing before - all have loved it. I sometimes fly fish in the sea. Not with a dry fly though!
