Experienced Greenback Catcher

Greenback Tailor by Sally Hinton

This young osprey fishes regularly off Hastings Point. About a month ago he flew overhead calling loudly showing off his magnificent catch! I used to fish for tailor with my Dad (Allan Hinton) about 30 years ago and never understood why they were called Greenbacks – all I could manage were the small choppers! When I saw the osprey with this large greenback it all made sense! Clever bird!

Ed. Thank you Sally, at least we know there are Greenbacks out there?  Glad that birds can’t enter the comp 🙂
