|In the Van|
After checking in we headed over the winding road, to our location it was a cold day only peaking a 7C . On the plus side we did have a upstream breeze. First cast Brian hooked up a fish fishing NZ style on the nymph , must have been around 2lb, but after a good scrap the fish ran between his legs snagging the klinkhammer in his boots and made his bid to freedom.
A pity it got off , it looked a real beauty, but things were looking promising, a few fishless pools , i rose a good fish , and again in the next run Brian hooked a big fish which ran downstream , and again got off. Things just not quite going our way. We then took a few smaller but beautifully coloured trout.
