I agree, it is a lovely looking fish, a hen just starting to colour up, I think.That is a beautiful fish.
As you probably know, Foxons used to build rods on Winston blanks. His daughter Renee is a superb rod builder. I've had a few over the years, and do like their softer action.....they are quite fast action but not stiff and tippy like many rods.Loving the R.L. Winston there, nice fish.
