Gluttons for punishment!

We Fished a difficult river today, it was a first visit for me. The main target was simply to get one of there marbled marked trout, i  missed a lot of trout today, broke off on a big fellae being the highlight or lowlight  i suppose, mission accomplished though , a couple of trout landed and one sported the sought after markings.
"Marbled" trout

 Succesful flies or flies which got takes ,was a bit of a mix. cdc on straight and curved hook, biot klink, biot DHE, march brown emerger , and a hareear  klink while it was used for hanging a nymph.

 A few challenging venues make for an interesting  prospect over the next month, hopefully the gods will be kind?
