That is a great photo of a trout in the water with a rod. That is the way brownies should be.
Well worth logging on just to see the photos.
Bob.

Are black, white, yellow and brown people all of a different species? I don't think so! We have an amazing diversity and we interbreed.  Why are trout so special that we call a slightly different shape or colour a 'new species'? The cynical me thinks it may be due to scientists having to strengthen their claims to get funding and I don't blame them for that if it is the only way. The research is to be encouraged, but the claims?

I confess that I dismiss the concept that these fish are a 'new species' I see them as a strain which seems far more reasonable to me and fits in better with my undertanding of 'how things are' and indeed how adaptable our Trout are to their environment.  I'd maintain that is equally a good representation of good bio-diversity.

I can cope with the 'Laidon benthic strain' of Brown trout,  that's reasonable.
I cannot deal with the idea of calling that a new species Salmo Laidon Benthivourous (possibly the right Latin  :? :!) becuase it's a Brown Trout that has adapted to specific conditions in its environment  :wink

the early Observers series of books had all the trout variations but then they were all thought to be just environmental variations and they were left out of future publications,just shows you? Derek Roxborough
