The Brown Trout Circle Dance from Arnt Mollan on Vimeo.

Years ago, I was lucky enough to see large Brown Trout swim with their Dorsal fins above the water, to measure strength and size. The Circle dance. This I have never forgotten. One day I was lucky enough to experience this again, this time with the camera under water. The chance of getting this spawning behaviors filmed in still water, no wind, swimming in and out of the morning sun, is close to zero. So enjoy this view.
