Ferox '85

Here's a couple of videos from the influential Ferox '85 group.

Founding members of the group were Ron Greer and Alistair "Aya" Thorne, both scientists at the Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory in Pitlochry, Perthshire. Their quest was the elusive Ferox Trout.

It was an episode of Hooked on Fishing by Paul Young,

also once a member of the scientific team at Pitlochry which inspired my interest in the search for Scottish Ferox Trout, which is as Ron Greer describes in his book " Ferox trout and Arctic Charr "

can be,  " a brain numbing, bum-numbing fishless eternity. Those who will survive will be relatively few and will thoroughly deserve their fish. "

How wonderful it is that the Ferox '85 group continues their quest into the 21st century !
