An evening session on the Wylye found mainly caddis and gnats on the water. However the late arrival conincided with a hatch of Mayfly worth waiting for. In these upper reaches, the trout rarely run large with a 12" fish being a noticeable specimen. But these wild fish put up a spirited fight and, with a careful approach and thoughful casts, these beauties can be persuaded to engulf an imitation.
