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.

Cheers
Liam

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....
