Grey Wagtail, or Linnaeus’ Motacilla cinerea

Kept me company on Yozawa Trout Stream today.  Sadly I wasn’t in luck with the yamame today – two beautiful takes, but no hook-set – but I landed two brace of hard-fighting rainbows, all on a dry fly, and all released.  Proceedings were brought to an abrupt close with an almost Biblical hail-storm in the early afternoon; I should have kept an eye on the glass (when I finally did, it was at 967mb) but the booming thunderclaps – sounding like artillery, in the deep of the valley – had me scampering for cover long before I could get soaked.

Today’s bag was therefore made up of locally produced silkie eggs, monstrous shiitake mushrooms and a curious local specialty, wild boar curry.
