Hawthorn time!

Myself and Brian managed to sneek in a wee trip on a wee burn on sunday, it was freezing , but we managed a few wee fish , mainly on nymphs though one or two did stick there nose out for a dry. I mentioned to Brian how i was hoping to see hawhorns and black gnats on the water , but i'm sure the weather stopped them hatching just a smattering of hardy olives put in a show.

Today i managed to steal a couple of hours, and today the hawthorns hatched in there millions it's just a pity the trout on my local dont seem to switch on to them as a food source prefering upwings, it's always been the way where as the wee burn we were on , on sunday are quite partial to these black beasties aptly called Bibio marci as they appear  around St.Marks day.
Back to cold weather tommorow and into the weekend. Needing some heat we have a trip north in a few weeks time!
