Sounds like a Greyling and is called 'The Lady of the Stream' because of her refined beauty, her lacelike dorsal fin, her grace and the subtle way in which she rises and takes a dry fly.

She even has her own perfume, a thyme-like odor reflected in her Latin name. Thymallus thymallus, In French she is called or 'Ombre commun' Common Shadow, and in some places known as the "shadow of the stream.
