Anthony, from Western Australia, on first pool and first hook-up with #14 black emerger. Almost season end and this was the start of the best river day of the season!
Plump fit fish all day — no monsters to hand, but one big fish break-off and another of those heart-stopping ‘just missed’ it moments when you take eye off the fly to sight next rise and casting spot, to look down at lifted fly only to see largest mouth of day was about to take the fly.
Great fun on the #3wt, early it was emerging mayfly, then on to ‘hopper patterns, then afternoon late spinner hatch — 20+ fish to the fly and all but two on the dry!
Magic corners …
… and delightful runs, all produced results.
