Today I had a morning on the river, when I arrived it had dropped considerably since my previous visit earlier in the week. upon arrival there were plenty of fish showing so I decided to tie a size 18 parachute dunn onto my leader, half an hour had passes and nothing had happened, there was plenty of fly life around but they didn’t want my fly. So I put on a tungsten bead nymph which has been very successful for me in the past few weeks when the river has been high and coloured.
after a few casts I was into a fish, the fish was putting up a good fight but was soon in my net! and what a beautiful fish it was. after a quick photo (taken by my official photographer Graham hake A.K.A my dad) the fish was safely returned
only a short couple of hours today however a very enjoyably couple it was! I will however be back on the river invertebrate monitoring later on in the week hopefully.
