Here's a challenge.

Let's check your "Fish - ID" skills.

WHo can identify these fish?

I think they are Cherry Salmon.
The rod is a CND I know but what is the fly

I'm not sure, but the fly looks like a sunray shadow.

"The Leaper"

They just about look like the fish that has the latin name for "The Leaper".

Im with OC & BobK id'ing them as atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) on this one for a couple of reasons: no fear of the rod means used to humans. The coloration, length of the jaw versus the eye look right for the atlantic.

I'm with JD on this one: Atlantics.

Only seen them in photo's but the 'spots' are what make me go that way in my thinking.

The two were released .... right?

Assuming no photoshop intervention, I vote Cherry Salmon.

Thumbs up

Once again Sinktip your observations could be correct on the photoshop. Always go with your first reaction. But then again Kush being the gifted fisherman he is may have the ability to land two salmon at once or better yet he talks with fishes and asked them for a photo op. Yes it could be an add from Japan but knowing Kush I fear that maybe too easy. Anyway they are some what pretty little fish so they could be Cherry but then again farm raised fish are also somewhat on the smallish side. I bet Willi Gun could solve the puzzle.

OKay

They are in fact the elusive 6th Pacific salmon - the Cherry Salmon. The CND rod was a giveaway for some. No Brian - Nobuo sent me this photo in an e-mail and Tak used it on the CND web-site. They are cool fish and I will post another shot so you can all have another look.
