Fishing lunch

I have to admit that as a River Keeper on such a fine spring day, I pushed the mower to one side for an hour or two today. With no wind, warm sunshine and a fine hatch of grannom, the temptation of fish rising was just too much!

After putting down at least a dozen fish prior to catching my first, I went on to catch four superbly marked wild trout, the largest being just under a pound. However, I did hook one fish that nearly took me down to the backing ! Consequently as it was a surprise, it duly took control and threw the hook back in my direction. By early afternoon, the grannom were thick and fast, but the rising fish ceased as they filled themselves up on this spring banquet.
