Back on my Old Stomping Ground
The river was low and the stones ,covered in slimy slippy green algae as we have not had any rain for several weeks now, the air thick with spinners and midge. But in the early part of the evening the nymph ruled supreme , the deeper pocket water and runs producing the best sport, the first fish i hooked got off as it embedded my tippet in a clump of algae , pretty much a lesson from the off, "play them hard"! But after that i got into the groove.
there was the odd fish that fell for the dry too.
As the evening wore on and more risers became more evident i decided to try a rusty spinner , and i did the trick taking a few more trout before calling it a night at 9:30 pm.
it was greatfishing this stretch again , must do it again befor ethe seasons out , till then i fancy a change of scene , perhaps pike or pehaps a trip to a beach?
