First trout of the season
a seemingly endless winter today was my first opportunity to get to my local
beck. The day was cold the beck was running a little high and well
coloured from recent rain but I was determined that the season was starting
today. I would have liked to have started the season with a
fish caught on the dry but although a few olives were hatching not one rising
fish was seen. I took to searching the
dubs and eddies with a small red bead head PTN. After 30 minutes prospecting likely lies
that first stabbing take started my season.
The fish was small and not the most pristine fish I have ever caught but
if ever a fish was welcome then this was it….
I had a couple more but after an hour and a half fishing I decided to call it a day. I mean to make the most of the summer with lots of new fishing to explore I am hoping it will be a good one..
