This is a real trout and a real fisherman. But is the fish really as big as it appears? I think you know the answer – this fish was only about 13″ long. The trick is an old fisherman’s trick. You simply hold the fish as far away from your body as you can, and, if you are lucky, the photographer has a wide angle lens. Does this fisherman need to exaggerate when it comes to fish size? I don’t think so. He’s an accomplished fisherman who already has one “real” big fish posted in this blog.
