Sutton Brook Hatton 4/07/08
Went to sutton brook on the fenton licence tonight,
I have heard of hatches going on but there were loads of fly life, lots of brown/black moth looking flys hovering over the water, also quite a few mayfly.
Walking upstream there were fish rising everywhere,
What i did not realise was these were roach, i took 6 roach all to a adams, they were leaping out of the water taking flys!!
Further on upstream i went to the catle crossing where i have seen huge chub, as no trout were showning i put on a massive sedge and bang i hooked into a 2 lb chub!
The fight was good but nowhere near as good as a trout would be in the same weight, I then hooked and landed another 2 lber in the shoul of chub.
Near dusk i took another chub to dry fly again near the bridge section by the road, this one scrapped its head off, after landing it weighed 3 lb 4oz,
The pictures show 2 chub, the 3 lber the one in the grass and also the head shot,
Well driving back i was a little dissheartened not to have any trout but hey most course anglers would of been over the moon!
The trout seemed to be nowhere, well i will be back for another go soon.
