    If I could catch only one type of fish for the rest of my life, I'd have to choose bream, for three reasons.

    1) They're darn near everywhere, so I wouldn't ever have to watch other people fishing and think "Bummer there are no <whatever fish> near here.

    2) They fight with spunk. With the appropriate gear they're quite a tussle.

    3) They taste damn good.

    Bonus reason: I catch bass, both LM and SM, on "accident" when fishing for bream, so maybe I could hook some of them to scratch the big fish itch and just long distance release them.
    Cheers,

    Like many others I've caught a variety on The Fly I still like catching Rainbows & Browns however my preference swings towards The Browns.

    That entirely depends on your definition of "only one fish". I have never been able to fish with two rods at the same time so every fish I have ever caught has most certainly been "only one fish".

    Ahhh i misread the first thread. It's only one type of fish.
    In that case I change my answer to Salmonidae. That should cover a few

    They really are the one fish that will never let you down. And what fly don't they eat, that like you mention, anther fish when hungry enough will likely take as well, leading to the technicality of well I'm only fishing bream but I caught a bass or a pike.

    Good example of them never being a let down... Yesterday it rained all day... was 55f... Quite the cold front moved in... Lake was looking sorta pea soup-ish from what would be a recent algae bloom... And I was still able to land a few sunfish.
