With just a week left of the season for river wild brown trout I'm determined to get out every day for a couple of hours.
I had a stonking couple of hours this afternoon. When I got down to the river there were no fish taking from the top but I was undaunted and tied on a G&H sedge and immediately got a fish to rise to it. After a couple of casts the first fish came to the net. A second soon followed, also on a G&H sedge. I then tried a couple of other dries but failed to get any interest and had no luck on a nymph. The sedges proved to be the flavour of the afternoon when a CDC brown sedge caused a few fish to take a closer look. Eventually one found it irresistible and took it on a very splashy rise.
