Washington To A Bit Of A Wash Out



A day with the Rivera’s today from Washington DC, the weather forecast said it might rain at 12pm or maybe 6pm but we would have to make the most of it, the day started of quite nice if a little cool, talking to John and Maria they said that they only fish a handful of times a year so would be a little rusty, I thought I would keep things very simple for them a little bit of duo, to start off with things seemed a little slow, nothing moving on the surface, so hopefully the nymph under the dry would pay dividends, talking with Maria she had a couple of fish on but nothing landed, I advised her to not lift into the fish quite as hard and walked up the river to see how John was getting on , he hadn’t had a touch in the first run, so I moved him to another run and explained how to fish it and things started looking up, nothing very big to start with then a couple of better trout, I think John had around 5-6 fish in this run, by now Maria had landed a couple of fish and it was time for a move to another run and a change of nymph, a change for the better as well Maria hooked into the best fish of the day a very nice grayling, by now it had started to spot with rain, the rain got heavier and heavier, as the rain increased the less the fish seemed less interested in our flies, so by 3pm a wet John called it a day
