Brown Trout



This was a Brown trout just over 4lb that was caught a few years ago when we were out on the river fishing for salmon.  And as you can see the damage they do in the river is quite bad, when we opened it up there was five salmon parr inside it. How many salmon parr are eaten by these trout in a season on the river.

Pike Fishing


A hungry Pike feeding on another smaller pike. I often liked to use an imitation pike lure when they were hard to get a take from them.
