First bash at the dry fly

SUCCESS AT LAST

I was starting to get a little paranoid for a while there, perhaps the curse of the blog or something as I was not catching any fish. WELL today certainly made up for all that …..I caught over ten lovely trout all on a dry fly. To be honest I don’t fish the dry fly often but I must say that I am now well and truly hooked.
The water was a lot clearer today, as you can see from this rather bizarre picture…

Well maybe you cant…But that was just one of the strange photos that I managed to take today. Its damn tricky trying to unhook a trout, whilst standing in a river , and at the same time try and take its damn photo…

OK ok….I take crap photos, you try it!!!!

here is a prepared one…

The day was almost spoiled by two blokes with there bait rods out and at the same flogging the water with massive fly rods, all within 20 feet of each other.
Met another nice guy who is over for a few weeks from Holland, he was staying with his parents. He had quite a heavy rod and did not seem to be catching anything so I told him where I was getting all mine but he still had no luck. I offered him my rod for a while but he said no…….Must have been put off by my amazing casting ability…………
as for the ten minutes I was casting with him watching there was no tangles,fly catching on my waistcoat and all line generally ending up in a big heap. I even caught a fish when he was there….Probably thought I was an expert hehehehehe

Oh by the way, I caught all my fish on the vet school stretch at the part…….Well if you look at the picture below this post you will see it..
