So it was a nice evening down at the other river I fish on Thursday evening. It was warm with plenty of flies on the water but the fish were taking there time responding, it was not until 10-11 that trout started to properly rise. It is funny that as this season on th erivers I fish it has not been a quick start, I have spoken to a couple of folk who think the rivers are still a month behind.
It was touch and go whether we went to this river as Alberto wanted to change the plan and go after Sea Trout somewhere else at the last minute. After some discussion, we decided to go after Sea Trout next trip out together, I have been promised 5lbers so I am looking forward to it.
I have been tying up some of those JG Emergerâ€™s that were in Trout n Salmon magazine, I remain sceptical however as the way it was raved about in the magazine made you think they put on a different fly every now and then as they got bored catching so many trout, big ones too.
Both Emmanuelle and I took our trout on black Klinkhammers whilst Alberto took this on some little olive imitation (meaning I forget what it was).
The caption competition is hotting up with a fair few entries, dont forget any picture as long as I have not stolen it from another site is fair game for a caption.
