Was out for a few hours today, water still a bit coloured but clearing. Caught a few small trout and hooked into a decent fish also but lost it. I'll return for him another day if the cows in the field allow me after a young bull gave chase much to my embarrassment, second time this has happened to me. Guess I have bad cow etiquette :)

What a big browni!!! Beautiful fish  :z16

Fished yesterday on the Don, from 11 till 6pm. When I arrived it was not too windy and some trouts have been feeding on the surface, managed to catch 2 small brownies on the dry fly. Then the wind picked up and I changed to a march brown wet fly...
Suddenly a strike and bend in the rod!!! I though this must be a big one and a second later it jumped and pulled line of the reel. Finally a fish that is bigger than my hand...  :grin :grin :grin

This was my first Don Sea Trout, probably not a monster, but a amazing fish and good fun on the 5wt... I didn't weigth it or meassure it. It took him 20 second to recover, then took of with a big splash and headed upstream...

Can't wait to go out again!

I've been out the past couple of days also. Friday was good with 9 fish ranging from 1/2lb to 1lb all on the CDC and Elk. I was out last night for a couple of hours from 8.00 - 10.30pm. Some great big fish rising to upwings and sedges, I managed 2 of around 1 1/2 lbs and lost another which was fractionally bigger. All fish were taken on a size 14 CDC and Elk.  :z16

Nice fish Phil, from my homestretch of water too eh?  :z16

I had my first River Fishing session yesterday, looking at the pictures above i'm clearly doing something wrong  :cry, caught plenty of 1/2 - 3/4 lb Brownies but nothing to ride home about.

Any information on fly selection etc, would be much appreciated as i'm on a bit of a steep learning curve.
