    Those fish look like that they could test a reel's drag system.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    They are THE worst tasting fish ever.
    Can be very challenging to take a fly at times and school up in huge numbers

    Ard they are Arripis trutta. Not a true salmon.

    Alex is Right they are terrible tasting ..you would have to be really hungry to eat them.
    They are literally everywhere up along The East Coast & boy do they put up a battle.
    Some people mince them up,mix them with onions & make Rissoles out of them.
