Fascinating, Stanislav. These seem to show the characteristics of the European stream trout (or Fario). Are the fish you pursue mostly wild or from stocking? Are any of these from lakes?

They are all wild. No one from lake . Look the new three pics especially the third one this fish dosn`t have a mout. All tree are from our high mountain lakes!

Very cool! I notice especially the red spots on the dorsal fin of the fish with the strange mouth. I've seen these spots on a few populations of wild browns here in PA and suspected that it might be more common in native European strains. Thank you very much.

PS--Do scuds, freshwater shrimp, crayfish, or perhaps snails comprise a significant portion of the diet in the lake where that last fish was caught?

Wow! Gorgeous photos. If only I had the time and money--Bulgaria would be my next fishing destination. Thanks, Stan.

That bottom one is really something! I wonder if the weird shape is due to an early injury or a developmental problem.

I've seen hatchery fish with a similar deformity, but I don't know the cause. (Perhaps David has some thoughts about this.) The red on this fish is so intense that it reminds me of descriptions of the Irish "Gillaroo," which is reported to be a snail eater.

Oh c'mon, David! That was funny, and Hollywood (like lawyers) is fair game. And I had read that whirling disease could cause cranial deformities. Whatever the cause, it's kind of sad, really--it is a truly striking and beautiful fish otherwise.
