In the Air

A healthy 2-pounder takes to the air on a recent trip to Scotland. It's amazing how many people bang on about the athletic prowess of rainbow trout. Yet, wild browns literally knock the spots of them when it comes to getting airborne. Surprisingly, it's the larger specimens that exhibit this trait and whilst these are always tentative moments, we can take stock that leaping trout burn up precious energy. In doing so, hopefully they tire quickly and come to hand that bit sooner.
