It's a fine day for those who are out. Hopefully you guys get a good hatch and the trout are looking up!  :z15

The weather better be this good tomorrow!  :z16

Conditions were spot on.

But i only saw 4 olives all day  :cry

I did catch one though



Can't say the same for any fish, my mate got a couple on the salmon gear, but they were not looking up today, although there didn't seem to be much for them to see.

Great to be back out on the river though :z16

Not so good on the fish front then...... I may resort to the nymphs!

I was going to fish that beat as well tomorrow, so I best have a rethink again  :X1

Went for a nice walkabout on the river today, saw a few olives ..... but not enough to interest the trout apparently :z4

Had two, maybe three casts to make sure that I remembered how to do it. Conditions seemed good, but we didn't see a fish all day.

It was great to be back on the riverbank :z16

Sounds very similar to my day Mike.........  :z16

Except I pounded the shit out of the water with big streamers just for good measure!  :oops  :roll :z4

There's always next time though!

Yup we saw twice as many flies today, about 8 :z4 :z4 at this rate, a week next friday might be good :z16
The fish might have discovered they can look up :z7

well, saw some MBs on the water. 6 or 7 in total, and a few LDOs. A brief moment when we thought it might kick off... but no. Between two of us, we reckon we saw 5 rises all day. Twas cold and gloomy and Haar-dampened kinda day. Soon, though, soon...

Similar story across the board. I was out on opening day, very quiet, saw a total of 4 MBs. Nice to be back on the river though :z16

My best of the day...

Hoping for something bigger on my next outing :z18

My biggest from the Deveron on Saturday. It came to my depth charge PTN in the last run of the day!  :z16












I'm still not 100% sure what the fish was...... Skinny Brownie or Sea Trout Kelt?   :z8

Roll on Tuesday and some nice weather!
