Yesterday was roasting hot and last night was warm. It was so hot that I thought I was going to blank at one point. As it was I managed a nice plump trout from a tiny bit of pocket water. It was beautifully spotted, hundreds of them tightly packed along its body. Not the typical Kelvin trout I thought. I never got a picture as by the time I got my camera out I just felt it was that little bit too long, then it jerked and was in the water.
I must have covered the trout around 20 times before it took the fly. When it did, it took it aggressively. Whilst I was fishing I heard different guys on the road near me who were obviously worse for wear after watching the football. Here is a selection of what I heardâ€¦
â€œI have NEVER seen anyone catch a fish out of the Kelvinâ€
â€œLook at that fanny, thinks he will catch a fishâ€¦..hey mate you are a fannyâ€
â€œYouâ€™ll catch nothing but sunstrokeâ€ (note: it was 11pm)
Made that trout all the sweeter!
