~A crystal clear mountain stream in the Pyrenees~

In search of Zebra trout:

Situated close to the Mediterranean the Pyrenees might sound like a hot place to be, especially in August. However, such is their altitude that mid summer temperatures remain extremely comfortable. In fact, with all the snow melt gone, it's prime season and we're heading out there right now. Rendered cool and gin clear the Pyrenees mountain streams and brooks are home to many salmonids. Let's hope the weather is a little more settled than here in Blighty and those flighty Zebra trout are looking up for dinner...
