It looks like spring, but

It looks like spring,  but the cold wind makes it feel more like winter. Fished the main river today, which is running clear and in a few well sheltered spots spring was trying to emerge along with a few hatching grannom, but the trout didn’t have chance to rise to them because they were quickly whisked away by the wind.

I fished a size 16 weighted nymph and caught plenty of fish, including a good grayling of 2lb. Finally in one small run a few fish were rising to a now steady trickle of hatching fly, on went a grhe and caught two small brown trout before it was time to head home and warm up!!
