Spot the difference

I caught this beautifully coloured Brown Trout (first pic) in April 2009. At the time it weighed approximately 1lb (give or take an ounce)and I returned it to the water.Then in August 2010 my good friend caught a splendid trout from the same water weighing 3lb 9ozs (seond pic).This fish was killed for the pot, which is something we don't do very often.The photograph he entered into his fishing diary was of the other side of the fish.But then one night in March 2011 he was looking through a lot of trout pics on his computer when he saw an image of the other side of the same fish and somehow went back to my fish only to see that they were in fact the same fish with an incredible weight gain of approximately 2lbbs 8ozs in sixteen months.If you look closely at the spots on both pictures you will quickly see they match exactly.
