    What a day...

    First and foremost I must thank Chris Aldred and Louis Noble for an excellent days instruction/tuition and for sharing there knowledge and tactics... And of course for there time and patience and a good few laughs throughout the day. I feel a lot more confident in my abilities and have gained a little more knowledge and experience alongside some very useful tactics and tips (especially Czech Nymphing the Aldred way ) great idea mate!
    If any of you out there are after some instruction and tuition don't hesitate to contact Chris he's a top fella and great coach... He must be as he put me on to my first ever Grayling and some great memories of a fantastic day, on a cold day in even colder water...
    Thanks Chris and Louis!!! I will be back for more!!!

    Here's a few photos I took during the day






    One very, very happy manc...

    I didn't use my gear Steven as Chris had brought a selection of rods for us to use and after coming out of the water with a right birds nest and re-tying a a new leader and two droppers proceeded back in to the water to have my point fly come away from the keeper ring unnoticed I must add create another birds nest before I'd even got in position and had a flick. But Cliff saved the day by loaning me his magic wand whilst he and Tony attempted to make sense of the tangle... Cheers Cliff much appreciated.

    Steven your furled leaders will be used tomorrow on the River Ethrow, Walkerwood and myself are out tomorrow afternoon for a couple of hours... I'll let you know how I get on... Quick question if you read this are you still doing the nylon furled leaders?

    Cheers... Woz

    Well done, lads!

    Saturday was also a grayling event for me - not my first grayling, by many, and not my first on the fly, by one, but my first day catching several grayling on the fly and not feeling any were fluked. Fished the duo, with my own beadhead nymph under my own foam post Adams and had four grayling and only one unwanted spotty in a couple of hours. Very satisfying!

    Cheers Fred... Totally breath taking and I will be going back for much more guaranteed

    Thanks Spider and Steve, it's always more satisfying when your own tied flies succeed On the stillwaters that's been ticked off my list but yet to accomplish such a feet on the rivers TBH I was very suprised at the size of the bug, nymphs and klinks we were using I personally would of thought they were to large, but obviously that's my lack of experience and knowledge on these moving waters

    Funny you should say that, I started off with a fly like the one on the left (but with hare's ear guard hair tail), caught several fish and then lost it in a tree.



    Changed to the smaller fly on the right, not a touch. Gave it a good try as well.

    Back onto the one in the picture, catching again. I think they like a good mouthful!

    Steve,

    Both fish were caught on a woven brown and green bug, tied on a partridge size 8 czech nymph hook, no messing about, give them something to get stuck into
