    One from Menteith on Wednesday...


    Note the rays on the tail - always seem to be more developed on blues than on rainbows, for the same length of residency or type of water.

    An ancient one from Menteith... not quite in the mooth!

    ... and one of the few photos I have of a blue that actually came out showing it as blue!

    I assume there are big variations of "blue" out there, I assumed I had caught blues until I caught one that looked like it had been dipped in dye, even the eyes were blue, I then thought that perhaps the others weren't blues after all, now I'm not so sure.

    There are, as far as I know, only 2 mutations that produce fish that are known as blue trout. One is more blue than the other, while one of them has a tendency to fade with time... possibly resulting in some of the variation seen.

    Or something like that...

    More variation results from photographs taken of them, as it's not a pigment effect, but a 'Tyndall effect', causing light scattering - like butterfly wings, or peacock feathers. Some cameras seem to reduce the effect - mine seems particularly bad at removing blueness from blues.

    Col, all those blues you caught and photographed look like the same fish same profile weight and colouring. Can you explain why?
