Alan only just spotted this the now. I'm going to give the competitive fishing a miss this year. I want to try and get a couple of methods down and just enjoy my fishing. Maybe next year  :z16

Hope it goes well for you this year. I'm sure I'll see you at some point this season.

As promised.  :z16

I started my day with the SSS. Six weight, sink tip and streamer.

After a couple of hours and only a rattle I switched to the floating line and waited for the hatch. At 11.30 the flies started to emerge and the trout began to rise. I had a couple of nice trout and a handful of Sea Trout kelts which were good fun and put a nice bend in the rod.

The hatch lasted pretty much all afternoon even in the crap conditions. I saw a nice fish rise in the tail of a productive pool and got into position. After a few failed attempts my fly went where I wanted and up he came!

This fish was hooked at 3.25pm and there was still plenty of flies drifting down. Not my usual gear but I was pretty happy with the way the 6wt performed.

All in all a good first day of the trout season!  :z16

So was anyone daft enough to be out today and if so how daft were the trout :z18

being stuck at work on the first day of the season wasn't as bad as i thought it might be, watching the rain/snow/hail crossing the runway horizontally :z7

Mind you i remember one 1st of April that was particularly excellant for fish in the middle of a rain/snow/hail/windy........:X2

By far and away the biggest brownie I've seen with that deformity. Presumably its great, great, great grandparents ate Chernobyl ants....

Spotted this on FaceAche...some fish, amazed it managed to get so big with such a deformity. Caught in Iceland.
