Nice grayling bigtel, congratulations. Not looking for specifics but where were you fishing? Montana?

Congrats. They are a really pretty fish. The way the scales do in sunlight is something you can't get in a photo. Have to see it in person to really appreciate how they look. I haven't caught one in something like 40+ years and I still remember it like it was last ..... month? Cob webs.

What a fish! I also hope to catch one someday. Thought about it when I fished the Au Sable in Grayling Michigan, where there used to be Arctic Grayling, but no more. Thanks for posting the pictures!
