Jim’s Day

Today I fished the middle water from 14:30 to 18:00. When I arrived there were hardly any Mayfly about but the trout were near to the surface ready for the them to appear. A reasonable hatch started around 15:30 and it was at its best between 16:00 and 17:00. A good few trout were rising but nothing really big. I lost count of how many I caught, all wild fish between 0.5 and .75 lbs. My best fish was just over a pound and I also caught quite a nice grayling. By 18:00 there was not a Mayfly to be seen and the river was dead.
