What a lovely pair (the fish aren’t bad either) …..
Nothing better than fishing with a good friend; company, banter and great story telling. This was an impromptu fishing trip, in January with cold winds and rain for most of the day. The two Browns pictured above fought well, one slightly more spotted than the other. The only story that really matters is that Mr. Little’s Brown edged it on the scales by miles …. (however, Mr. Bell was firmly in first place when it came to the Rainbows …).
Some of the rainbows were silver in colour however, some were had a lovely pink tinge like the one Mr. Bell is holding, but in every it as good a condition.
A nice plump specimen rainbow for Mr. Little, but just look at that reel, a lightweight Nautilus 5/6, fresh in the post from Fly Only yesterday (thanks Viki). All fish were caught on lures retrieved slowly with various jerks in between (no not the two anglers !!).
We had a great day ……
