A real monster of a a male

A gorgeous male mimicking the autumn beech leaves

A female Salmon in full flight. Many are only airborne for about half a second.

Presumably a Sea Trout - many spots below the lateral line, long upper jaw (hard to judge from this angle) and bulging tail centre.

A very large male that almost avoided the camera

A young Sea Trout taking a breather on the weir edge

A stunning male and without doubt the king of all fish.

A failed jump.

A Sea Trout showing the upper jaw extending clearly behind the eye, many dark spots below the lateral line and the concave tail tip.

I am guessing a Sea Trout from the lenght of the upper jaw

Sea Trout left and Salmon right. A nice comparison showing the lenght of the upper jaw relative to the eye.

A nice profile of the Salmons seriously strong tail.

Salmon pair with the female behind.

Grey heron perched on the Salmon ladder in the middle of the weir

Dippers displaying on the Salmon ladder wall
