ive done a little bit of fly fishing but i just cant seem to get the line out very far, im going to practice in a field somewhere

You'd be much better off getting a few hours of casting instruction. The problem with practising when you're not very good is that you're practising casting badly, not casting well. (And I speak as someone who casts pretty badly himself!)

You're right Rover,
Given the numbers of big sea-trout on the east coast, this fish was much more likely to have been a sea-trout than a brown trout.

Nice fish anyway (in season of course).

hey webmonkey yeah theres plenty of grayling on the broken scar stretch spider patterns,mallard & claret and red tags do the job.

Im sure czech nymphs work well in the right hands but ive only had limited sucess with them on the tees.

Anyone braved the weather to have a bash at the tourists yet?

i planned on going on monday but when i seen the snow i thought nope not today, passed along the tees near teesside park and the banks were flooded so maybe not the best conditions for fishing

Had a go for the salmon this morning, i blanked. The river is surprisingly low im presuming most of the snow hasnt melted higher up yet.
Anyone seen any springers yet?
I watched the fish ladder at broken scar for 15 mins, didnt see anything passing through, theres a whole huge tree, roots n all stuck on the dam itself tho.
Anyone else been out playing in the snow?

Amadeo

your supposed to take the plastic off a cork handle, its only to protect it before the rod is sold!

it must be slippy like that?

but worse, the cork will rot when it gets damp.

merely an observation.:)

Hey Amadeo, was that you that passed me and my mate yesterday? We were trotting for grayling and were having a good bit of sport in the snow...I seem to recognise the blue line on your reel!!!

River much lower than I was expecting it to be. After you saw us (at least I guess it was you) we moved upstream mainly to warm frozen toes up. Nothing doing at the bend area and when we went back downstream to fish the "shoal" again we had found there were two cormorants and three goosanders working the area. No more fish - guess we should have stayed put while we were catching. Still the morning was good.
