Another day out with Warren today, this time on the upper Wye, Warren fancied something different in location and techniques so as the Wye has some fantastic long rifles and faster runs I thought I would teach him spider fishing, I don’t think it is very common fishing method in the US so it would be a new method in his armoury, the floating weed in the Wye was all over the place good cover for the fish and a nice place for spiders as they are a light fly you can get the flies to work in the gaps in the weed and not get snagged up as much as nymphs, Warren said how it would work perfectly on one of the rivers he fishes in the US as this gets choked with weed as well, straight away Warren was into fish not very big to start but quite a few, as we moved down a fast run Warren was into fish again not as big as the fish we had yesterday but plenty of them, in the last run of the day it seemed to have a lot more grayling than trout and the fish were bigger as well, so all in all it wasn’t a bad day.
