Outing 26 April

Today 26th out with Brother in Law Nick on the Carter Water and below Poundbury. Sunny and warm but not really much about. Caught a good one, getting on for a pound, late morning on the Carter Water ( secret location – going back there for Mayfly! ) – see photo attached. Nick took a can of Coke with him, tucked into his chest waders, which promptly punctured as he bent down under a fence, but even that sticky mess failed to raise much flylife. ( We sat outside for our Sun Inn pint and sandwich ! )

Saw Robin A below Poundbury – he told me not much doing except some instantaneous catch and release. Back to read this month’s T and S – there’s some handy looking Mayfly patterns in there this month.

Best wishes
