The Mayfly Season has Started!

I was down there for a couple of hours this afternoon. The weather didn’t look that promising, cold breeze and dampish, but I was in for a pleasant surprise. Hatching in just ones and twos but enough to have the fish on to them. I caught a good number of fish. Pics attached of one of the best of them – the net’s 15 inches. The stock fish this year are really good quality and I caught two others of about the same size.

I left at 6pm with the hatch dwindling away to nothing and not a rise to be seen. If I hadn’t bunked off work a bit early I would have missed it all !

Kind regards
