A typical salmon kelt from the Spey.
A typical salmon kelt from the Spey.
To an untrained eye this has all the appearances of a fresh salmon but it is not! After spawning the fish appears elongated having been relieved of the spawn and its body fat over the previous months. On entering the fresh water from the sea the fish do not feed until they return to the salt water which only a few manage to do. This fish was returned unharmed a few seconds after the picture was taken.
