2015 starts with a Grayling

On Saturday i had my first trip out of this New year. We went to the spot Brian had been doing so well in over the previous few weeks. Before we even took the rods from the car we fist stopped of at the  service station for a full English and a latte. Set up for the day we walked downstream a wee distance, it was a misty start , very cold with still plenty snow on the ground.

Once we were trotting things started pretty slow then Brian lost a fish, after that he decided to try downstream and as he went i hooked up , the fish fought really well ,but eventually i managed to slip him in the net.

Eventually the sun managed to cut through the mist , and Brians pool came to life , with him losing one at the net , pricking another and then landing one.

 sadly the was the last action of the day , but it was nice just to get out fishing again  .


  1. well done Col, nice to see you out again.

  2. Thanks George , hopefully it won't be to long before I next wet a line.
