I've not posted for a while, I've been a little busy.
The fishing over the last few weeks has been good, very good in fact. Last week (Friday) one of the local rivers was teeming with fish, more rise forms than you could shake a wading staff at.
Today on the Dee it was windy and cool and the fishing stuttered before it got going. In the morning I had a few snatches at dries and nymphs but no solid takes.The afternoon was a very different story, the wind dropped, the temperature rose and the fish became more active. Even though there were lots of olives coming off the water there were few rising fish.
Nymphs definitely won out over dries and 4 grayling and a brownie was brought to the net in quick succession.
A good end to the day.
