First visit of the season to another local river today, i decided to try a bit ive seen before but never wet a line, so it was a fair walk downstream from where i accessed the river. When I got to the pool embeded in my memory i tackled up, and there was a trout rising in the tail of the pool. There was a strong downstream wind so i got level with the riser and he obliged, just a wee fat trout taken on a brown biot klink.
I then went downstream as the pool below also looked good and there was another riser , closer inspection revealed to be two fish .
Another two fish took in similar circumstances on my way back upstream , before i ran out of rising fish so decided to look at a tributary. i was a bit overgunned with a 9ft rod but a few small trout took my glister bug in the deeper slower pools.
It had been a interesting few hours , but i do wish things would move on a bit ,the few fish that are rising are still in the weakest flows , it's high time they moved into the runs, i'm expecting by next weekend more rivers will come to life.
