Fred, an experienced stream flyfisher from the ‘old dart’, hit double top the other day on the river, on the dry.
First cast, fish to hand and then lifts the season bar to 20 to hand for the day!
By this stage, above, Fred had got three to hand in a space of 15mins and 20metres of stream.
Another very nice stream wild brown is netted, Fred is obviously enjoying getting re-acquainted with this group of ex-pats.
Being a natural hunter also helps the angler read the situation. Fred clearly enjoyed the ‘untamed’ nature of our streams and this added to his appreciation of the days action.
