Dry Fly Heaven

The weather has been nothing short of crazy this year but finally we have had a few days of settled conditions. The water temperatures are low and well oxygenated so the fish are feeding, often looking to the surface for a meal. Matt Daly and girlfriend Adele visited this weekend to sample some of the best dry fly fishing we have had for a long while. Mark Bailey got them going on day one and then I took over on Day 2 with the task of netting Adeles first trout and hopefully realising Matts burning ambition; to catch a Wild Brown Trout on the River.

As you can see the lake produced the goods for the adventurous couple who have both play professional hockey while also taking part in all sorts of other outdoor activities including climbing and skiing. Their goal is to head to New Zealand for a fly fishing holiday, a place that I yearn to revisit after a trip several years ago that blew my mind.

Matt emailed to say: "Thanks again for a great weekend, hopefully we'll be down soon again"
