    Lovely fish (Suin) is that the right way to spell it?

    I have not fished for many years, but catching one on a still moonlit night has always been a bucket list job for me.

    Great stuff and hard to beat a sea troot on the fly,esp at night.
    Wee bit early here but there should be some in the system by now and the old fella had a 4lb grilse nearly a fortnight ago which is very early too.

    Never caught a sea trout what a beautiful fish. I once cause a bat too on a small dry fly on my back cast. Absolutely crapped myself when it came flying past my ear.

    Lovely fish! That brings back happy memories of the River Earn near Perth in the 1960s with evening fishing in May and June after school. I never fished at night, just ledgered with a worm in the tidal stretches south of Perth - you had a brief chance of a fresh run fish for maybe 20 minutes as the tide started to flow. As soon as you could see the water speed change, it was too late. I'd also hook them on a trout wet fly further upstream below Forteviot bridge in much faster water on summer evenings. They'd hit so hard it was like hooking a train - never landed one. A few seconds and the tiny trout fly hook was pulled straight!

    Get it ticked off before it's too late!
