Top day for Michael

Michael (from Germany) onto his first for the day – taken on an unweighted mayfly nymph pattern.

First one on the dry. Michael was delighted to use the #3wt on the stream as he uses similar gear back home and between emergers and black spinner patterns had a double figure day of fish to fly .

This wild brown was particularly satisfying as Michael saw it feeding some distance away, then polaroided its position, then the black sinner over its nose and on! 

Amongs the lost fish was a magnificent brown est at 2.5lbs+ that we watched break Michael off around a tree root.
