In search of shelter

The rain has continues to play havic with the rivers and last weekend saw the River Chew still in flood - not only high but very, very coloured. My good buddy Nick was joining me and the plan was to introduce his sister, Hannah, to fly fishing. With the river out of sorts and more rain coming down, our only option was to head for a stillwater - and it turned out to be a great decision.

Hannah's a super fast learner and with the casting basics in the bag, it wasn't long before she was fishing alongside her brother. It was great to see her hook into a fish - well done Hannah! Great result.

A really enjoyable morning with some tremendous fishing too - well done Hannah.

Nick also put some fish on the bank, and I hope this short video sums the morning's efforts up:

The forecast is suggesting high pressure is moving over the UK towards the end of the week. Fingers crossed for some better weather.

Carp Fishing said...

Nice to see this pictorial post .All these pictures make me home sick and remind me of my childhood memories. In my childhood I usually went to fishing specially Carp fishing with my dearest grandfather. It was very interesting and amusing for me. Since then I am fond of Carp fishing and enjoy it very much. However thanks for this nice pictorial blog on fishing.
