Bank Holiday Outing....

- a little bit of gear porn, we all love it! -

After I caught up with all the paperwork and jobs ( which seemed to be never ending ), I managed to gather my fly boxes and headed towards the river. On arrival, things were looking less than hopeful........the river was up 4inches due to recent precipitation and slightly coloured.

- the tail of a pool sometimes holds good promise -

Just as I was about to head back home, in the corner of my eye I heard a rising fish. I clambered down the embankment and sat patiently.......A decent hatch of large dark olives and iron blues all intermingled causing a few more fish to start showing. Ended up with a few fish to hand and it was certainly better that twiddling my thumbs at home.

- a lovely brownie that couldn't resist a size 18 Iron Blue -  

- a victim of the recent spate -
