A howling gale with intermittent light rain finally told me the trout season was finally under way. Over the Easter weekend I was visiting family in sunny Birmingham, and boy was it sunny – almost shorts weather. However scanning the weather for today here in Glasgow it was too be cloudy, windy with rain – fantastic – I had a hunch the Large Dark Olives would be coming off. For once the hunch was correct and we were soon met at the water with many large dark olives on the water with sporadic rising trout.
I managed to winkle out two trout using my olive comparadun whilst Alex caught many more using nymphs.
I was glad of my new 5 weight rod – it certainly helped to put out a nice line in the howling gale.
Sadly I did not walk up as far as the dead sheep so am unable to give a full detailed summary of its decomposition.
From here on in it only gets better.
