    Some nice tackle there, takes me back a way. Used to get some lovely Grayling in the streamy water between Topcliffe and Asenby on the River Swale, where we now have Salmon now going through there as well, I would like to have a go there again with the fly these days for Salmo, if it hasn't changed too much I know just the pool.

    Poor lady has a real hole in her side, fish are very resilient to damage - over the years I have caught both freshwater and sea fish with damage from predators - never seems to stop them? do you agree, you say she fought well.

    Looks like a heron mark, I've had one this season with the same mark albeit a little more healed over, nice trotting set up and a quality hand made float

    I'd say cormorant, but the effect is much the same.

    Looks like a heron spearing. Great set up , brings back memories of long trotting on the earn and Clyde.
