What are your strangest stories involving fish that you know have been caught multiple times. I got a 14" rainbow swinging a small streamer on a foothills stream. I hadn't hooked it, the point had gone through the loop of a snelled bait hook that was sticking out of the trout's mouth. Judging by the length of protruding snell, the hook had to be nearly at the other end of the digestive tract! I clipped the snell loop off and sent him back with best wishes. Another time, I was stillwater fishing with my brother and his grandkids, from the bank. His granddaughter hooks a fish on a double chironomid rig, fights it for a minute and the leader breaks above the indie (windknot). A few seconds later the indie pops to the surface and then slowly moves down the bank to his grandson and takes one of his chironomids! Fights for a minute or so and gets off. The indie pops to the surface again, and moves down towards me. Rob yells at me to look out for it. I quickly changed to a small bugger and cast several times at the indie, finally snagging it. The fish did get away, but we got back the indie and the top chironomid. It sure looks like being hooked really doesn't upset fish all that much.
