    I concur sofasurfer, you beat me to it. A particularly nice one Col.

    We had a few hatching up on the Upper Sussex Ouse last night, I expect you have them over on the club waters now too at Leconfield?

    Cheers

    Paul,

    Yes, the main hatch is in full swing on both the lakes and the river.

    It travels north, the way that spring can be measured in mph. We start to see a hatch on Menteith last week in May, and in Sutherland, it might be mid-June before it gets going properly. However, I have seen a good hatch on Loch Calder in Caithness in the first week of August.

    Cheers both - I must have lost about an hour of fishing time getting the wee bugger to pose like that. Classic never work with children or animals stuff!

    For anyone still in doubt the picture below perfectly illustrates the differences between a mayfly dun and spinner.
