A couple of salmon caught while sea trout fishing

I fished Woodmill Pool for sea trout last Thursday night and got a lovely grilse of 5-6lbs and then fished Testwood on Monday night and got a salmon of about 9lbs. Lovely fish and fantastic fights from both. Took the grilse on a long shanked tungsten bead nymph on my dropper and the salmon on a blue and black snake fly. Pictures below. I also did pretty well with the sea trout but only took photos of the salmon as I'd previously only caught 2 and so they are still something of a novelty for me!
