It’s Warming Up

Went out on the river today for two hours starting at the Withy Bed. A little apprehensive to say the least due to two blank visits earlier in the month.

Upon arrival at 10.30 it was cool and intermittently gusty from the east. Within half an hour it was all change, every time the sun broke through even for only a minute or two the grannom came on and fish showed. By the time I finished between the viaduct and road bridge I had two trout, one small and one 12” on the green tailed dry grannom and a fat little grayling on a ptn, I had lost two fish on the dry when I first started fishing.

By noon the river was showing a lot of movement due it would seem to the abating wind and appearance of sunshine, so in conclusion there are plenty of fish in the Frome !
