So it was to my local water, in the most inacessible parts (for the time of night, ie not much folk want to be stuck in a ravine at 11pm at night) , i just needed to escape from the threats of neddery , i just wanted a trouble free fishing day, soltitude was priority tonight.
Well i got my wish i didnt see anyone else all night. I started with a size 12 Dirty Polly, hooked a fish but he threw the hook, so i headed upstream and to be honest i wasnt doing that well, putting down a fair number of fish. I did though get into my stride eventually when i sized down to a 14, the fishing became remarkably easy-ish . Fishing other waters that often demand bigger flies can throw you off.

As the darkness began to creep in i upped my fly size to a 12 , that worked for a while and when it got dark proper a size 10 did the job. A good nights sport plenty trout , in spanking condition and a lot of fight about them. Ive got my va va voom back!
