    This brown was caught last year in the exact same hole. I was NOT sure it was the same trout until I did a little looking at photos.

    The trout was skinnier than last year ...but about 2 inches longer.

    After check the gill plate...

    It is the same fish.

    The gill plate was noticeably longer too. Last year it looked like a Female....this year a male....

    It is the deepest hole in 300 yards and the trout hit within 4 feet of last year. Almost a year to the date.
