A Big Thank You To Big Scrim

A very big thank you to Tony for a very special day on the Dee, the forecast was very poor after the last week of lovely sunshine, but to be fair it wasn’t as bad as they said a little rain and strong winds, the first run looked amazing for nymphs but to both our surprises next to nothing, I had two touches and one fish on and almost straight back off, the run was quite fast and the odd fish rising here and there, so  as they say “I went back to the beginning” the odd blue winged olive fluttered in the air but as the water was so fast and broken I thought a small bwo pattern would keep sinking to quickly, so I tried a size 16 sedge pattern and bingo straight away a nice grayling, couple of cast and another and another if you spotted a rise in the fast water and placed the sedge three or four foot above it you were into a fish, quite amazing how you could run three nymphs through the run and next to nothing the fish only had eyes for the surface.

Things seemed a little quieter so time for a move, this time a long quite shallow glide with the odd fish moving, I still had the sedge on so why not try it again and the same result but still all grayling and no trout, it still kept going through my head that there should be some big fish sitting deeper in  the pools, so back to nymphs and see what I could do and to be honest not a lot three trout and nothing of size, try as I might the only way today was on the top, not a bad way to spend a day mainly fishing dries in October.
