Grayling [Thymallus thymallus]. The grayling is a species of freshwater fish in the salmon family Salmonidae.

Fishing is a lot more than catching fish; it’s a good opportunity to learn about yourself, others, and those you consider your friends. Learn about nature and the world you live in and have a positive impact on the future and the nature you live in.”

— Jean Philippe Tessier
