It was a fine afternoon, perhaps not for fishing with the bright sunshine, but days like these are numbered now so it was nice to fish in short sleeves again before the cooler temperatures kick in. The pool I start of on nearly always produces a trout and today was no different when an acrobatic pounder managed to shed the dirty polly from its jaws. I continued on my way upstream fishing some normally productive pools without a touch, with very little fly life on the water there wasn't a riser to be seen, then in the head of a shaded pool the dirty polly shot under and I struck into to a weighty trout which had taken the glister nymph.
Being heavily tree lined this burn offers more shade, and from the off the trout were in taking mood
a couple of hours passed as I worked my way up a small section of this beautiful wee burn
it had been a great afternoon and better still my hangover had well and truly gone!
