Spring Fishing

Posted on

Well, Spring has sprung, lambs are leaping, primroses blossoming as well as the cherry trees and fish are rising. The fish that I have been catching have been rising mainly to buzzers and some (unfortunately, not mine) to dry flies. I have been catching on small nymphs and large nymphs. The fish I caught were spooned and many buzzers (chironomid spp.) recovered, so trying something different, I tied on a weighted sedge pupa and had some interest and caught, some lovely bright, silver, fully finned rainbow trout. They didn't half tear about and put a good bend in the rod. 

I'm off again tomorrow, so hope that the fish are just as accommodating as last week.
