Do you think I could get another turn out these xmas lights?
These fish are beauties rabmax - They look incredibly fat.Snow on the ground this morning when i was driving to a river .I haven't fished there from before covid.What a cold miserable day.The river was chocolate brown & it rained all day.Think i caught around 10.Surprised i caught any with the water colour.Anyway had to try my new Vision Nymph reel.What a lovely reel it it has a great drag.Cheers
Yes they had been feeding hard..Caught most on a size 18 cream micro mop fly.There was 3 trout started rising taking LDO's.I had a twin wire olive Perdigon on the top dropper.Caught the 3 of them on the micro mop.They wouldn't look at the twin wire olive.Think the cream mop was getting action as it shows up in chocolate water.These fish are beauties rabmax - They look incredibly fat.
Yes great fight.Don't know about the getting warmer.Scotland has gone back to winter.Never known a season start like this.Drought in March & mini heatwave. Then snowing again in May.At least the trout are switching on now.Great fish. My fish also were in great shape. Do you also feel they now fight harder than in early season now that the water is getting warmer?
