Sea Run Brown and Ferox Fever

A sea run brown. A silver bar caught off the coast in Denmark

A sweet trout. There is a big winter fishery in the salt there. If I was younger I would be obsessed to get one like it here. The season is on now.


Ferox trout (Salmo ferox) is a variety of trout found in oligotrophic lakes/lochs of IrelandEnglandScotland and Wales. Ferox trout is a traditional name for large, piscivorous trout, which in Scotland feed largely on Arctic char. It has been argued to be a distinct species, being reproductively isolated from “normal” brown trout (Salmo trutta) of the same lakes, particularly in Ireland.[1] However, it is uncertain whether the ferox of different lakes are all of a single origin.[1] This fish grows to a length of 80 centimetres (31 in) SL.
