Never To Old To Learn.

Took Mike out today the day started of calm but raining quite hard and yet again rather cold, Mike hadn’t fly fished before so I went over the usual safety, the rod reel and line and then the casts, we started off with the roll cast off both shoulders and to be fair Mike picked it up very quickly, then to the over head cast, we started with basic pic up and put down, just as Mike was going to have a go we had a little surprise visitor, Mr otter fishing for his breakfast, nice to see but I really hoped he would leave us a few, any how back to the casting yet again Mike picked it all up very quickly, then shooting line, false casting Mike could do it all, so after a break for lunch it was time for some fishing and even the sun made an appearance, the only problem then was as soon as the sun came out the wind got up and got stronger and stronger, there wasn’t anything rising so on with a couple of nymphs, quick demo to show Mike what to do and he was away after around 10 minutes Mike was into a small grayling, then another 10 casts later a little brown trout things were going well in the near gale force winds, then another grayling with a rather ugly stab wound in the back of it’s head, by now Mike was feeling cold and fancied a cuppa so we stopped for around 20 minutes as we walked back to the water we were rather surprised the river was coming up/ colouring very quickly, Mike didn’t fancy going much over his knees in the river so he fished along the margins to be honest I thought the fishing was totally ruined but perseverance prevailed and Mike caught another small trout but the river was getting higher and higher so the weather and river stopped play.
