I wondered how you were going to get on with the snow   :z13

But the photos of the fish say it all  :z16

Well done  :z14

"Bloodworm" ......... good choice  :wink:

That reminds me, how did you get on when you arrived? Did you get some help with tactics and flies etc from the fishery manager?

If so ...... What did they suggest on the day and which flies did you buy?

Best wishes

Mike the owner helped me a great deal by telling me the different flies they were catching on... then one of the guys put the leader on for me and it was thick to begin with then went thinner and i tied my fly right to it does that sound right?

I loved every min of it Sandy and i want to do it again very soon, the weather wasn't cold at all just on the fingers i thought they were going to bleed!!!

I must send one of these pics to Jon Beer! to tell him i carrried on fly fishing... My casting to begin with was crap!! But by jove i had it by the end of a couple of hours, i stuck the butt in my sleeve to help me :grin:

The nail varnish story is that when i started fishing i always seem to have the same colour of varnish on and then when i had a pink i didn't catch :sad:

So i made sure i always wore the red :lol:  :lol:

yesterday when i got to the lake i nearly died when i looked at my nails and realised i didn't have any on, i instantly thought i wouldn't catch! But i have been proved wrong and will now be able to fish without :lol:

Hi     Wendy
                          It is all about confidence in the tackle you use ,i have seen me go through the fly box and ending up using the flys that always catch me fish. Thats the good thing about fly fishing,always trying new tactics and its great when it all comes good. Be confident.
