Reasons anyone should be amazed at catching rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus Mykiss):

  1. Top Speed: 23 mph/37 kmph. Hogs (larger fish) can get in an extra 1 or 2 mph.
  2. Distance to Reach Top Speed: 1 foot.
  3. Average Speed of Line Pull: 33 feet per second.
  4. Vertical Leap Capability: Three to four times its length. (For a human that would be 18 to 24 feet).
  5. Strength: Large trout are known to break leaders two times their body weight. (For a human that would be equal to a piece of monofilament line rated at 350 lbs.)
  6. Sensory Input: 500 to 800 times more acute than the sensory input received by a fisherman.
  7. ESP: Pretty sure they have this too.
