Default Who's caught...?

Hey Folx,
I was just curious if anybody out there has ever caught some of the rare/challenging coldwater species.

Let us know if you've ever caught:

Steelhead?

Bull Trout?

Wild Golden Trout?

Grayling?

Dolly Varden?

Taimen?

Marble Trout? (SE European)

Or any other rare/challenging ones I haven't mentioned

Taimen are a massive salmonid species native to Mongolia and surrounding areas. They are known for eating rodents all the way up to the size of a ground hog.

How about lake trout?
Arctic Char?
I haven't heard too much about either one of these being caught on a fly.

I also haven't heard much about lakers being caught on a fly. From what I hear they're generally caught while trolling deep in fairly large lakes. I also seem to recall that they are in fact not a trout, but a Char.

Come to think of it, I have heard mixed views on whether Arctic Char and Dolly Varden are in fact the same thing or if Dollies are a form of Char or what. Does anybody know the whole truth about this classification relationship?

For that matter, how is it that Browns, Rainbows, Cutthtroats, and Goldens are viewed as true trout when the Browns originated over 4000 miles from the nearest native waters of the Western North American Trout species? (Rainbows, Cutthtroats, and Goldens) Add to that the fact that Brook Trout, which are in fact a Char originated right in the middle of those two areas. Any body know the deal here?

Fanatic thinks everything is a Liberal Conspiracy. He probably blames the Liberals for making his truck window stop working.

Well considering he probably bought an American made truck assembled by members of Unions that are some of the biggest contributors to the Democratic party, he's sorta right!

(this may start a dangerous trend....)
