31st March 2013 - Welsh Dee

Third trip to the Dee this year and second blank! Feast or famine seems to be the theme over the last few months. I blame the weather but the being a fisherman a would!

Broke out the Tenkara rod for the first time this season after being inspired by Mike Roden from Tenkara UK and a great presentation at Bolton Fly Tyers meeting. Worked well for Czech nymph apart from not catching fish. My mate Phil did not catch either and so the fish were obviously not on the eed this time.

Some kick sampling was the only way I could catch something including this beaut of a yellow Sally nymph and a juicy Rhyac.

River Hodder - January 5th

First river trip of the year and Phil & I arrived and were both itching to cast a fly line on running water, no thanks to the crappy Christmas weather/ river conditions.

The Grayling took some time to find but we got there in the end! Czech nyphing was the order of the day and by the end of session I had learnt al lot, (most of which I had probably forgot from last year!).

Pumped stomach contents of a salmon parr shows fish were feeding on both the bottom and hatching midges. 

Grayling No 1.

Grayling No 2.

Phils parr.
