Perfect Fishing Day !

Had a phone call off Mr Alan Evans about a days river guiding, he had fished the small stillwaters a couple of times and wanted a bit more of a challenge, it was a perfect fishing day river on its bones, not a cloud in the sky and an easterly wind getting stronger, this didn’t put Alan off, so we walked along the river talking about how to read the river, looking for fly life ( which there wasn’t a lot off) and talking tactics, we didn’t see any rises, mind first thing when I got up there was a sever frost so I wasn’t expecting much untill it warmed up.

I decided to start Alan off with upstream duo, a  Klinkhammer with a small hot spot hares ear underneath the dry, Alans casting was a little rusty and I think in the first run we scared a quite a few fish, Alan did have one on and lost it but never mind onto the next run and fish the duo in another style Alan found this a lot easier and grayling came to the nymph quite quickly, as we worked our way down the run two fantastically spotted browns came to hand and then another small grayling, as time was getting on and the fishing had gone a little slow as the weather warmed up we decided to work on getting the casting working better, so for the final hour we worked on roll and over head casting, with just a few pointers it was amazing how it all came together much better.
