We have been blessed this year with huge flush hatches of the olive upright fly which i have not seen ever happen in such numbers on the dove, these size 12 bright yellow/green flys are a absolute joy to imatate with being so large and the fish really did lock onto them.
Catching my biggest brown trout to a dry fly was a memorable occasion and it was taken from a trib of the river Dove on a unfished water that thankfully has not got a cliche name as a top fly water, these places are a joy to fish and i have been doing lots of research in finding these virgin streams..
There is one spot i walked and saw brown trout at every pool up in the water rising, and each one looked around the 2.5 lb mark including 4lb plus wacker!! disscusions with the farmer are still ongoing as he wont let anyone fish it but fingers crossed i will finally get him to let me fish it.
This is just a general post as i will be getting back into my story telling very soon!!
The podcast is going great and i have got some great interviews that are lined up and my plan is to get 2 a month out..
I must put a plug into Matt Eastham from North Country Anglers blog, he recently wrote a article about fishing low water for dry fly, i can honestly say its the best piece of written advice i have seen ever including all the top magazines, so fair play to Matt and i hope he gets the recontion he well deserves...http://northcountryangler.blogspot.co.uk/
Matt did me a podcast answer to a question and it was superb if you can get past his accent!!
I caught a fish of a lifetime last week, a Barbel on the fly, i was doing a feature for Steve Cullen Total Fly Fisher on this subject and i am still buzzing my head off, i dont want to say too much as its going to be featured in the magazine very soon..
So hope everyone is enjoying there fishing and hope to do a full post soon...

|Wullie Mcguire on the interview|
Well its been a mad one getting my head around the new living the dream fly fishing podcast, i have had time to get some fishing done including a trip to the Izaak Walton fishing temple on the river dove which was absolute dream for me and the fishing was hot too, i even got a chance to interview river keeper Andrew Heath who is one bloke on mission improving the river for us anglers, this interview shall be broad casted in 2 weeks time. I got chance to meet up with Stuart Croft one of my fishing idols and managed to sneak a cracking interview with him at a tenkara doo with Paul Gaskell and John Pearson. To listen to the new podcasts please find your required one on the player at the top of the page.. I fished the river Wye on Sunday with a Aussie guy who was given the delights of Wye in a full short flush of olives and boy he loved it... I also met up with the Wyes regular fly man Mick Martin who i spent hours with catching up on fishing, he is a top bloke and angler, mick gave me a lovely fly pattern i am going to copy which looked amazing so will keep posted on that one. Well as i write this i am packing my stuff to hit Islay for the first time this season and there is a gang of seven going which i will be hopefully showing the delights of fishing on this magical island. I would like to thank all the emails and messages i have had concerning the podacst and was lovely to get a nice one off Matt Eastham (north country angler) he runs the most beautiful fly fishing blog and this meant alot to me from someone like him. Hope your all getting amongst the fish now as it just looks like its kicking in finally Nice one Glen
