River Wharf below Loup Scar, above Burnsall.  caught a couple of browns, one surely wild.  spent the day Czech Nymphing as the water was a good foot above normal, deep, fast, and peaty.  peaty means a wonderful reddish gold color that made every fish look like a salmon.

Fish of the Season, according to my guide.  his or mine?  forgot to ask.  British browns are a gorgeous golden brown, no two spot patterns anything alike.  for future recognition, no doubt.

Way cool, Casey, way cool! You didn't say what tempted that Brit beauty. (Now's no time to start keeping secrets!)

there were three heavy nymphs on the leader: one bright pink Czech, one copper, and one tungston hare's ear. all day long the fish alternated amongst the three, but the pink and the copper got the most. the other fish pictures are characterized chiefly by the escape of the subject as the shutter snapped, but all fish pictures look alike anyway!

weather's good today--looking forward to the afternoon!

Thanks for posting that Casey! "Peaty" is such a neat, British-sounding term for those tannin-stained streams. I like it.

There must be some nice satisfaction in catching browns which are both wild and native. I felt a bit of that last week catching native rainbows in Alaska.
