What a fantastic trip! And some really nice pictures.
Thanks a bunch for sharing!

A great trip and great...

[b:6d64b13273]A great trip and great pictures.
I really like small bead head nymphs, they are a very successful
fly for grayling and brownies in small burns (creeks) here in Scotland.
Continue the good work.[/b:6d64b13273]
