After a miserable few months of many blanks I've finally caught a few BT's. The very first piece of advice I was given for my river was to use black flies and I've generally stuck to this advice.

But after such a lousy start to the season I thought I'd try something different last week - a Greenwells spider. Two fish last week and another five earlier to day. No longer than 6" but very welcome nonetheless.

Last session of the season for me today and landed a lovely 9 incher BT on a Killer Bug. A nice way to wind things up.

Best of the season for me and about time too! A lovely brown trout caught on a #16 Endrick Spider and measuring 8". Exactly the length of my water bottle.

This was probably my last session of what has been a very disappointing few months but it was nice to end it with a decent fish. Feeling good.

After reading the F-Fly thread I thought I'd give it a go yesterday afternoon and had a great session. Why haven't I used it for such a long time? Half a dozen small BT to hand and twice as many missed - they're so darned quick.

I only used the one fly in my 2 hour session but my Amadou patch and some Top Ride kept it afloat. As Beryl remarked - "despite natural tones they stand out nicely on the water". I'll vouch for that. Good stuff.

Gave my Zhu its first outing of the season yesterday and really enjoyed it. Had a few rises to the dry fly and missed 'em all but I did hook a couple of small BT using a (freebie) ceramic nymph from Stan Freyheit. Nicely surprised that my casting was OK not having used cane for a while. A most enjoyable session.
