Almost a great evening’s fishing!

Weather was perfect as I made my way 1/2 mile downstream to fish the evening rise back to the car. It was then I realised I had forgotten my glasses and spent the next 30 minutes trying to thread my fly on! Thankfully I was successful in the end and fished on up with a mayfly spinner.

Plenty of fish were still hungry for the fly, but as dusk started I lost the fly in a tree, no chance to tie on another – so it was time to head home…
