As you may recall, I caught this fish by Abrams Falls in Tennessee.
This one was from the Queets River in Washington
This Beardslee was from Crescent Lake, Washington.
All of them next to each other.
One thing I realized about rainbow trout, the variation between the strains can be amazing. All these fish are oncorhynchus mykiss, yet are so different. I just thought that a matching trio might be quite beautiful and interesting to the eye.
