The river was bright and clear and it wasn't long before the trout started to take an interest in a CDC emerger. Out of practice perhaps, as the first rise was missed only to to see another attempt finish in a swirl and flash of golden flank. It's great to back on the water!
The water was painfully low in places and there was a lot of fine silt and blanket weed covering the bottom. The river is in need of a decent flush of water. The picture below drives this home as, three years ago, Vince stood in a very similar spot and the river was above his knees!
Eventually we found few fish shoaled up and change to a Tunsten PTN found a positive take. It was great to feel a wild brown bid for freedom. The season's account was opened:
