Ian was first up having sighted a ‘nymphing’ fish just off the reed beds – the stalking begins!
Yes! hook-up on the un-weighted damsel nymph pattern and successfully brings wild brown to the net.
It was Andrea’s first-time fly fishing, and although getting the hang of it really well and targeting a fish or two, the fish had the last laugh, this time.
Day 2 saw Ian on the river with a neat netting effort on the first on the dry for the season.
A lovely 16″ wild brown on the mayfly emerger.
