BROWN TROUT

One fish, many forms. By Susanne Masters

If one creature can show us that genetics doesn’t entirely explain the differences in form that life takes it is brown trout (Salmo trutto). Little freshwater dwelling brown trout, sea faring trout and giant ferox trout are all the same species. Golden brown backs, yellow bellies and red and black spots make brown trout far more colourful than their name suggests. They inhabit well oxygenated, cool and fast flowing freshwater. They catch their diet of small fish and insects by ambush. When it is time to spawn they mingle with fellow brown trout, and also with visiting sea trout.

About Outdoor Swimmer

Along with the rest of the world we watched in awe on the morning of 17 September as Sarah Thomas swam into Dover to complete the first ever 4-way English Channel solo. The 37-year-old American and cancer survivor entered the record books after an incredible 54 hours and 10 minutes of swimming. An epic challenge that has rightly captured the world's attention. We were privileged to be part of Sarah's story as Outdoor Swimmer journalist and member of Sarah's support crew Elaine Howley posted live social media updates of the swim as it happened. Read Elaine's eye-witness account of Sarah's 4-way on page 32. Whatever the size of your goals, Outdoor Swimmer magazine aims to inspire your swimming adventures. As always, this issue brings you swim tips, training advice, destination and event reports, stunning swim photography and the most comprehensive UK and international event listings to help you plan your swims.
