    It is a sensational shot and I love your description :)))

  • Thank you, Sharon. Want to know a little secret…the reason that trout is “High Flying” (the highest I have ever seen) is that it was frightened or attacked by a much larger trout that can be seen right below it rolling in the water!! The reflection and the fact that the trout is above the horizon appeal to me.
