I originally got to this in another post but thought it was off topic there and might be kind of fun as a quiz on its own.

I believe that one of the best angler with fish pics ever is the pic of John Farrar on the Dean in Trey Comb's bible Steelhead Flyfishing. The pic in question shows a tailed fish on its side in the shallows as John kneels and gazes at it lovingly.

This picture ties into the narrative of the chapter about John's development of a specific surface fly. Now for the quiz. What in that picture does not match up to the narrative? I had read the chapter easily a half dozen times and admired the picture for years before it hit me. Let's see how sharp you all are.

Bingo -- we have a winner!

Like I wrote, it wasn't till after I had read that chapter many times and admired the picture that it hit me.
