Be another/a different kettle of fish

If you say that something or someone is a different kettle of fish, you mean that they are completely different from something or someone else that has been talked about.
EXAMPLES:
Andy was never very interested in school, but Anna, now she was a completely different kettle of fish.
I’d driven an automatic for years but learning to handle a car with gears is another kettle of fish altogether.

N.B. DO NOT CONFUSE WITH ” A FINE KETTLE OF FISH”

Now, this expression is completely different. It refers to a troublesome situation; a vexing problem. (Usually appears in the expression, This is a fine kettle of fish!)
EXAMPLES:
This is a fine kettle of fish. My husband is not here to meet me at the train station, and there’s no phone here for me to call him.
Alan: Oh, no! I’ve burned the roast. We don’t have anything to serve our guests as a main dish.
Jane: But they’ll be here any minute! This is a fine kettle of fish we’ve got ourselves into.
