Salmon spent and retired

By tonyguitar
I have a few age spots on the hands but nothing like this poor fellow. He has lost his speed so in the shallows to avoid hungry seals. Just noticed the gold under his fin. Is that a bottle cap or a gold ring? You bet I will check on that.

Nice to know the background to the capture makes it so much more interesting. Did you get a ring? Hope so if not you got a good capture of the fish. Debs
