Tails, this is not going to be a post about the various type of tails used in fly tying, or some of those tall tails we anglers are prone to tell of, "tall tales", sorry. This is post about some of the most wonderful aspects of our passion. We often take photos of our catch, and most of them highlight the the whole, or much of the whole fish as possible. While this presents a very pleasing picture I think much of the beauty is missing.
The other end of the fish is as beautiful as any part of the fish...the tail can be so striking and so telling of a fishes life.
These are a few photos where the tails are the focus. I will not tell you the species but will let you make that call.
Next time out try taking a good look at your catches tail, better yet take a photo.
