A couple of days worth of Dry fly fish





Large dark olives the main fly on the go



One of the prettiest fish so far this year, the photo doesn’t do it justice. Proportions were perfect, spots delicate and the fins tipped white



The smolts are in on the act too



Water temp is 12 degrees and the fish are going off like rockets



All in all a lot of fun with the 3wt

Nice,

Looks like a lot of fun. Been too busy to get to the Don so far, need to do something about that shortly.

Nice pics,

Lovely fish Filip. I see you go for my choice of trout net. The large Scierra net is excellent. Had no issues swallowing a salmon I caught last year and will easily deal with double figure trout too....A great net at a great price....

A lovely day today on the River in good company with Mr Nelson.

Not very many rising fish, however did see a few rises around where I connected with this fella.......(still not sure if it was the same fish,  :z8).  This is my personal best wild fish ever both River and Loch.  Apologies for the fish on the bank picture, I really was pretty excited.......... :X1,  I was very lucky to have landed him as at one point the line wrapped round my leg...., (don't ask).....But my 'river dance' worked *smiley-yippee*

3lb, ~18inches



The Clyde Style patterns are still working well, :-)
