the bigger trout were busy assuring the future, but this little gal splashed about near the bank in a patch of sunshine and made us think of spring.

added two rivers to my Yorkshire life list: Ure and Nidd. trout season was over so we were after grayling. they seem to live in the bits of the river that the trout don't: quieter water at the tails of pools and the end of riffles, mostly. they like nymphs down on the bottom, but they can be caught with dries as well.

if you would like the name of the guide and a link to his really great web-site, shoot me a PM.

Though's finger-less woolly gloves make me feel cold BURR. Lots of us here have spent allot of time in them. Nice pictures and a fine way to finish the year. Winter can't stay away forever.

Wow, that looks like a fun trip! Some "natives" there, back in the "Old Country"!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
