    Classic! Remember, never trust the advice of a fisherman. We are all liars! YOu should have gone with option B (SP River) or C (Green beasts)……

    I needed trout action – you seen good hatches on the SP river?

  3. Campbell S · April 10, 2011

    I have not seen a good hatch there since 2009!

  4. Alistair · April 10, 2011

    I reckon that is linked to amount of trips!

  5. Campbell S · April 10, 2011

    I fished there more than anywhere last season I think, saw feck all!

    However trout still rise to dries – there must be large dark olives at least?
