bank holiday drought

Social commitments are starting to get in the way of my fishing! With a mix of cricket, bbq's & visiting family my only angling opportunity this bank holiday was sneaking out onto the river at half six saturday morning. There wasn't much happening by way of surface activity so I experimented fishing my newly tied psycho caddis on a top dropper with a little green goldhead benieth. The tactic worked really well with the fluoro-caddis acting as an indicator and all the fish falling to the nymph.
The weather is gloomy & shite in Manchester at the minute but, I'm like a coiled spring waiting to pounce on the first fishing opportunity!

Here's some pics from the boys weekend in Abersoch. The tranquil fishing trip soon degenerated into... ...booze fuelled watersports
My arms & back are now completely goosed.
Looking forward to some fly fishing.

Geek chic

Spent the last week on the Cote D'Azur & after an unsuccessful couple of evenings seeking out suitable trout rivers under the thinly veiled guise of looking for restaurants with the missus, I was resigned to just spending a bit of time knocking out some flies in anticipation of a return to some on-form water back home - for which I was called a geek!
