    Wild Trout and Grayling fishing 2021.

    Special fish this one, it lives under an overhanging willow tree and the only way to get a fly to it was a downstream dead drift, totally hidden by the willow I struck on the slurp. That'll teach him to be a noisy eater 😂

    Wild Trout and Grayling fishing 2021.

    The Danica are beginning to tail off now on the little river I fish but what a few weeks it's been. Vulgata will be about for most of the summer and the sedge and terrestrials will keep the fish looking up, shaping up to be one of my best seasons

    Furled leaders

    And if Orvis did sell furled leaders I'm sure Mr Tom would have a very different narrative Mr Trouts furlies are splendid and for short rods and small streams they can't be beat

    Adding a fighting butt

    Best thing for shaping composite and rubberised cork is a carbide chisel then finish with emory cloth, be aware both types get very hot compared to pure cork when sanding

    I think the belly has been accentuated after the fish slammed into the tree behind my right shoulder
