Troutin' About (Part 3)

A few more Brown Trout from the last couple of sessions lure fishing on the river Dodder. The river has been a good bit higher recently and as you can see Sam and I have been concentrating on trying to catch the trout using small plugs. We have had some success, plenty of fish including a few in the dark but no particularly big ones just yet.
