Nice one Hoppy, saw your post on flyforums too. Nice fish
I used to live not too far from the welsh/english border and fished a few times in Llangollen, but only caught small ones. Next time I visit my parents, you'll have to guide me one day _________________ An englishman lucky enough to be living and fishing in Norway!
Ours are also Thymallus thymallus but the colouring differs slightly from the "danubian" variety. The original Italian Grayling has electric blue fins while the "danubian" variety commonly found in Austria, Slovenia etc has red fins. Ours is more delicate and doesn't grow as big as the red finnned variety and as I say is extremely delicate and is risking to dissapear from our waters (overfishing, pollution, hydroelectric plants and stocking with the easier to breed danubian variety).
