dead nettle Lamium purpureum
olive uprights were on the menu today with the odd brook dun too, in some pools they were coming down in there droves.
the shucked cdc was working its magic taking the lions share of the fish
Col spotted a what he described as a wolf of a trout on the near bank of a particularly ugly pool next to a scrap yard. Once in position the shuck cdc was drifted over him and the wolf was on!
he was a fine two pounder
a few more followed to end a good day.....
.....and this afternoon I was back for more! although the hatch wasn't as good as yesterday a few nice trout fell mainly to the shucked cdc. All in all not a bad weekend and right on my door step.
