Too easy! oh and I see what you mean about the tail...I wonder if thats fairly fresh spawning damage, because there is a fair amount of crud in there to scuff them up!
Probably spawning damage, I should have got a close up photo of the tail - but I was too busy getting stung!
Cracking Brian, I've no managed one myself yet :(
Cheers Mick, it was a 17 mile to and from the river and wandering round and round fish spotting in the nettles - and most ignored a bait. I’m watching your blog - I’m sure you’ll be back in the fish soon :-)
