Objective: get first ever wild trout on the dry and in a river

Dan, who had an introductory workshop with us in spring 2016, was keen to learn more about dry fly / river craft. Started the day on the broad waters with improving presentation.

Then onto the faster / variable flow waters – upstream dry fly presentations.

Objective achieved! Wild brown on ‘hopper pattern.

Successfully netted and then released. Dan ended up with 7 to the fly (all on the dry), 2 to hand, another with weight on and the rest … well another day??
