Went down to the river fora few hours today. Well, one hour to be exact, i caught a couple of tiddlers and one nice sized at around quarter of a pound mark.
It was a bit windy, trees blowing about, little flowery thingsblown on the water that kept getting caught in my fly.Also the water was a good deal lower than usual, i would say around half a foot lower. Did i mention the wind? Have you actually tried to cast a four weight into a strong wind? its not a pretty site I assure you…….damn near had my eye out a couple of times.
Didnt get a chance to try out my “grey dusters” that I have been tying up. I decided to tie up a good few in a range of sizes as
a. They seem to catch fish, they look like a wide variety of insects
b. looks like that fly Bob Wyatt gave me……..possibly a variation
c. I have all the matarials
d. its easy.
Unfortunetly I did not get a chance to try them out today as the wind was so strong, but pretty much like all my dry flys so far i can pretty much bet they will do U-Boat impersonations.
