making the most of it

With no fishing on the horizon for me this weekend today would be my last chance to wet a line until next week. After dropping my wife off at the airport this morning i had one or two other chores to deal with which left me with a few hours of fishing time before the kids finished school. I arrived at the burn before noon to find it running clear and a good bit lower than on my previous visit.

 encouragingly there were a few olives kicking about and the odd riser to go for, the size 12 klink seemed to be to their liking taking most of the trout today with the brown wire nymph picking up a couple too.

  the biggest of the day rose under an overhanging tree, after missing him first cast on the klink he took the nymph on the second  putting up a great scrap until i slid the net under him .

he was in great condition
i've passed this welly boot a few times now, hope there's nobody attached to the other end!

it was nice to see a Grayling putting in an appearance, they've been hard to come by on this stream of late

all to soon i had ran out of time and had to head home for school finishing, next week can't come soon enough!
