Well done Ged, Is that the same river I fished with you?Good evening guys.
Very late for me I know! It's what happens when your mate burns his clutch out, for the second time. He was only lamenting this morning on it passing it's MOT last Friday without need for any work. At least this time we got the fishing done first.
Right to the fishing, it was bl00dy good. I've taken a vid but no time to sort it so will have to do whenever. I fished my 8.9ft #3 rod with French leader and duo. My CDC dry and grey nymph on point. Caught both grayling and brown to both. River was low and it was sunny, hence French leader. Lost a few fish and missed few, some due to hitting over head tree branches and some this afternoon when the breeze got up and bow in my line (see Baz, get all the excuses at the ready ). To the numbers, my mate 10lb 10oz managed 4 grayling and 5 browns, his mate had 10 grayling and 7 browns, plus he caught the biggest fish at 16 inch. Me ............................ I managed a 14 inch brown and a 12 inch grayling amongst a total of 6 grayling and 27 browns (the flies work Baz ).
Well done Tom, a good catch.
Good luck with blood results and pansiesView attachment 30950 Noel. I saw that about broadband this morning. Any excuse.
