It’s true, I take way too many pictures of fish. That said, these are only a small fraction of the fish I’ve caught. If I take a picture of a fish, there’s usually a reason for it. Some of those reasons are recorded here on my blog, with others lost in time. Most of these pics are trout, the places they inhabit or the bugs they eat, because… well, I’m a trout snob. All fish were released unharmed.
