Early in our Research and Development program in Southern Chile, one of our guides, Garrett Sullivan, caught this exceptional fish.
We took some shots and released it, thinking “man, that was an awesome brown”.
When we got home, we sent some pictures around to a bunch of folks, and maybe half of them responded saying “great fish, but that’s not a brown – that’s clearly an Atlantic salmon.”
Over the past couple of years we’ve had a lot of people weigh in on the topic, and opinions seem to be pretty split. We’ve also thought in the past about running polls on our blog, so we figured now’s the time – we’ll let the collective wisdom of the internet identify this fish!

P. S. Yes, we considered the R&D program on that river to be successful, and yes, we fish that river at Chile West whenever we can.
P.P.S. If you’d like to chase exceptional fish like this around Southern Chile, drop us a line – we’d love to have you.
