A bonnie sea-trout

This one was taken by Chris on the last day. It eagerly grabbed hold of a free-lined sand eel within a few feet from where Chris was standing. [Chris writes: This fish puzzled me. It was relatively silvery and in fairly good condition, so I wondered whether it was a sea-trout which had skipped a spawning year or a veteran which had spawned the previous November and returned immediately to the sea, feeding thereafter in saltwater during the winter period. I wrote to Ken, who knows everything: sea-trout only very rarely skip spawning years, he wrote in reply, and it seemed likely to him that this fish is that veteran who spawned in November 2009 and returned immediately to the salt. So there you are.]
