Wild trout are like snowflakes - no two are identical. Genetic and environmental variables produce an infinite number of color, size and shape combinations. I never cease to be amazed at their beauty. I guess the closest thing to identical trout would be hatchery fish - they all seem to be the same dull aluminum color and cookie-cutter size. But hatchery fish, too, in their own way are beautiful creatures...at least in the exaggerated stories I tell when I manage to catch one!
