Fortunately, the weather was dry and sunny for our fishing to catch sea trout kelts (a kelt is a fish that has spawned and is on its way back to sea) on the Frome in January. We are catching sea trout kelts to insert 2 tags so that we can gather information from the tags on the timings, movements and locations and swimming depth of these fish in the lower river and at sea.
