So I went down the Kelvin the other day with someone I have been mailing for a while. It was one of those days that it just goes to show you can actually go fishing for a good few hours in bright sunshine and pretty grim conditions while catching no fish and still have a cracking day out. All in all though even though I am saying that we caught no fish when I actually go ahead and tally up the number of fish I find myself with around 5. Now that I come to think about it there was plenty fish rising but I kept missing the takes…….we had a few casts in at a pool that I generally pass by as it is so slow……..hooked a fish for a few moments and then it was away…..just goes to show you that there is always something new to learn about the river!!
No biggies….but still fish all the same!! I was fishing dry as usual and my fishing buddy started off dry and then changed to wet techniques which he is more comfortable with….
Later on as the day cooled down more fish started to rise, there was some sedges and olives on the water……..it was very tranquil and pleasant with nice bats on the water…
Need to get stuck in and get some knlinkhammers tied up……..I have been noticing that once a fish has taken on then that is the fly pretty well waterlogged for the rest of the trip!!!!
Need a plentifull supply!!
