Wild Brownies

After a lot of ‘umming and arring’ about whether a particular stream would be suitable for fly fishing after the recent downpours I took the plunge and went anyway, this time joined by Graham.

Upon arrival at the stream the time spent wondering about the river level and clarity was clearly wasted, the water was low and clear. As we walked up the stretch the trout were rising to small upwings. Graham had the first fish…

A couple more smaller fish came to hand before we had found a nice run that contained a number of fine fish. We worked our way up the run nymphing and ‘dry flying’ and caught a number of fish to 1.5lb. I’ll let the photos tell the story…

 
I think this stream is going to be rather fun when the mayfly hatch begins!
