Way back in May 2013, we posted a couple photos by Jon Hill, which showed how he had caught the same brown trout twice. Well, yesterday Jon sent in the photos here, along with an explanatory note:
Happy New Year! I’m off to a pretty decent start here in Denver. You posted my photos a few years ago when I caught the same fish a couple of weeks apart. Well, wouldn’t you know, I did it again. I caught this guy back in mid December and again this past weekend. The markings are identical and caught in the same area. I have nothing against keeping what you catch if that is your style, but I’ve always said that I would rather catch a fish multiple times than eat it just once.
Has this happened to anyone else?
Jon Hill lives in Littleton, Colorado and works in the digital-graphics field. But he spends almost all his spare time chasing trout in the high country, and his photos have been featured many times on the Orvis News. (See here, here, and here, for just a taste, or visit his blog, Ramblings.) He’s also a former Trout Bum of the Week.
