Also had a chat with an 'old timer' who, when I mentioned that I was surprised to have 2 nice Sea Trout on Tuesday, commented that the Don often has an early run in late March/ early April...
Lindsay the elusive. Do you carry a fishing bag? If so think I have seen but not spoken to you the 2 times I been out.
Cracking fish Noel you did well under those conditions ! Thanks for the intel on state of the river - I may give tomorrow a miss now as I don't like fishing a rising river. Maybe Sunday or Monday will be better assuming it doesn't pish down. Sounds like the fish were as disinterested in the LDO's as Thursday ? Surely in these cases they must be picking off ascending nymphs in or near the riffles, would be interested to hear what you more experienced guys think ?A couple of folks have said to me that fresh Sea Trout in the Don is unusual in early April ? I am 100% positive mine from Monday were fresh fish and not kelts, even well mended ones. It would be interesting to hear other's thoughts.Yep, the dreaded Flying C ...............but not on Sunday !Cheers,Lindsay
