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.
