Stream craft day for young angler

Josh, onto his first for the day, was keen to learn as much as he could about small stream craft and presentation. This wild brown took a bead-head nymph using a variable depth technique under a strike indicator.

Meanwhile dad, David, was acting as scout early on to spot any movement up ahead.

Josh got this one on a ‘hopper pattern. Good presentation to an earlier noted feeding fish’s position paid off!

Nice one Josh! It is always a pleasure to pass on knowledge to young (and new fly fishers). Trust Josh has decades of pleasure and continual learning to come following his passion for the fly.
