Gay trout? I have been worried about this for some time. This can happen when you spend too much time in the laundry. Last November I spotted one – a brilliantly coloured example. Then yesterday I spotted another. Possibly even the same trout. The technicolour flamboyant cheeky mannerisms were unmistakable. When any other trout realises they have been seen they usually have the decency to either sprint away into the depths, or in the case of lazy brown trout, they nonchalantly drift away. But this one, once he/she realised someone was watching, preened and showed off instead! Completely unafraid. True. Very strange behaviour. Quite disarming but it worked. I did not dare try to catch it. I was too distracted admiring the posturing. That might be why they are called “Rainbow” trout as they are one of them… I hope Harvey Clark will be able to explain such lewd behaviour as there are sure to be many more gay trout in Rotovagus.
