trout sleep

Perfect, John. Having grown up in the mountains, I have a special fondness for rainbow trout. With little else to do, much of my childhood was spent trudging up and down river banks trying to catch one.

Thanks for such a beautiful image.

Once I met a young trout tickler. On the Tweed was it? Near Peebles, anyway. I caught two trout with a fly and a line on a stick; my uncle made the fly. Great childhood times and memories. Cheers J!
