Lovely Session

The early evening was hot and sultry and the river low and clear. There were still plenty of mayflies hatching, but strangely the trout were ignoring them. Further up I noticed Blue-winged Olives and the trout were already onto them. I had a little pattern in the box in a size 18, tied with a …

Evening Rise (at last)

Had a very memorable evening fish with my good friend Adrian, who is down for a weeks fishing. We bumped into the Chairman who was enjoying the carrier, catching a few fish on a large humpy pattern. There were already spinners in the air and one rested on my rod for a while. We had …

Not quite the last evening rise?

John Went to the upper water last night, found the Wrackle water-level nearly up to winter levels because of the greenery – silly me, thinking I could just walk across dry shod to the main river at the end of a dry spell in September! Hooked and lost one good Wrackle fish in one of …
