Rainbows galore

The first autumn day was a feast!

As promised I went off on the first coastal trip of the autumn today. And it as as good as expected!

The weather was just perfect and there were fish in the water.

A lot of fish!

Unfortunately they were mostly rainbows, which in Denmark means escaped fish farm fish, blown out of their cages during the last few weeks of very hard wind.

These fish are not beautiful. They are overly fat and often without tail, but they weigh in at 4-6 lbs. and give a very good fight. And we do kill them and eat them. Ridding nature of these misfits is doing a good deed. They are not supposed to be living in the Danish waters, and even though nothing has been proved, I fear that the vast number of rainbows introduced during a storm will effect the natural habitats severely.
We literally saw hundreds of rainbows and one single natural sea trout - plus a school or two of mullet.

Well, I will do what I can to remove the rainbows. I'm going again Sunday.
