Hawthorn fly

Just completed a great two days fishing with my good friend on the Clubs water. Where we encountered huge hatches of grannom but hardly any fish rising, then lots of fish rising to unseen fly!

New fly patterns successfully tried, but too many flies lost to the trees!

Lovely warm weather and amazing hatches of hawthorn fly, quickly halted by a chilled breeze that blew down  the valley! We found hidden hatch pools and met old friends.

Of course there was the loss of a HUGE fish and best of all we had lots of laughs with lots of great memories.

Note: If you intend heading to the Frome in the next week, I suggest you come armed with a good hawthorn fly pattern, because if these start to land on the water the fish will go crazy…!
