Species Of Fish

Here are fish, which can be caught in the u.k with enough skill and time.

River Fish
 
River Lamprey
 
These come to rivers every year from the sea, and inhabit sandy bottom rivers or stony bottom rivers, they have a clamp to suck on dead fish, almost like a leech. 
 
Eel

Trout
 
Another member of the salmanoids, these are much harder to catch compared to the brother Rainbow Trout, they come in array of colours ranging from blues to yellows and most commonly brown, The river tweed is famous for the amount of wild brown trout which are resident.
 
Rainbow Trout
 
Similar to the brown trout, these fish are stocked and farmed, these originated in canada and were imported as eggs in the 1880's. These fish are easier to catch as there are more, spinners work well with the rainbow trout and they accelrate from 0-30 mph in a second, this is why rainbow trout are such a good game fish.
