Mates have a day on the nymphs

Jon (in stream) and Jeremy on a better day, but still too cold for the long-awaited hatch, so weighted nymphs proved the best fly.

Jeremy has just hooked up in the shadow upstream …

… cheeky little wild brown on the bead-head.

Jon is then into a better stream fish, again on the bead-head.

A well deserved grin on a hard, but enjoyable day.
