Treowen tench.

About  15% of our tench in the large lake bear distinctive marks. This may be a ragged tail, fin or a scar. Sometimes symmetrical bill marks on each flank from a cormorant or goosander. Then there are the “freckled” ones with small red/orange spots in distinctive patterns. Occasionally there is a fish with a golden blotch, also very distinctive. Or a notch or tear in a fin. There must be more than one very old skinny lady here but this one turns up in 4 out of 5 visits. Once I caught her twice within an hour. Perhaps she is following me around the lake.

Here are a few.
