Two out of three ain’t bad

Ed, Neil centre and Peter far right, on our introductory water.

Peter strikes first! After only a few minutes, Peter hooks up (and lands) a 2lb rainbow on the nymph. First one on the dam this season and his first ever on the fly.

Not to be out done by his long time mate Peter, Neil gets his first ever on the fly, and the first wild brown on the dry this season on the ever reliable Dark Brown Emerger.

Although working hard, learning heaps and targeting a couple, the fish weren’t responding to Ed’s efforts … well, 2 out of 3 learners with fish to hand on day 1 is not bad.
