Santiago de Compostheap

With P.A on his way to Kuwait & Tom on his annual Pilgrimage to Satiago de Compostheap to flagellate himself with a 4 weight, I had the river to myself last night.Had a great session before dinner using a little Elk Hair Caddis to tempt the rising trout, I also had the bonus of seeing a pair of Kingfishers & some huge Dragonflies.

Biggest yet...

P.A tricked this lunker with a home tied caddis...
it took an age to subdue on 2lb frog hair, easily the biggest yet this season. Just look at the tail on it! It rose to the fly like a submerged log before waking up and taking him all over the river - the fish was definitely in charge.
