|Chris working the single nymph|
A few small rainbows and brown came to hand and it was time to head off downstream for some dinner..
I was introduced to a few of other members who came into the hut who were very polite and i even had to tone my swearing slightly although i do find this hard..
Chris told me to get ready as we were going to some rarely fished water as he knows thats what i love, the weather had warmed up slightly and i was hoping for some dry fly action, i could have stayed in the hut longer and got on the wine, something i fear if Woody ever joins, as i can just picture him crawling out of the hut leathered lol....
We made our treak for a few miles upstream and this was something else, the views were amazing with rock faces either side in stunning scenery, i did not know these places existed but to fish hear also gave it the extra edge..We soon spotted a rise and Chris kindly said 'its your fish mate, its your day' What a sound bloke, Chris was letting me fish loads more than himself and just kept telling me to keep fishing..top bloke....
I covered the fish with a JT olive and whack i landed my first cress wild rainbow to the dry, a small fish but lovely..
Well from then on the large dark olives came off big time and the whole river erupted with rising fish, we were fishing in the middle of a stunning valley with fish walloping olives, i was fishing quite hard as not expecting the hatch to last long, but it went on for over three hours!!
We were catching fish after fish, we had chance to see which fly worked best and the JT olive came on top every time, the Adams did ok but JT's Olive took the piss slightly when a natural dun came drifting down with the JT and the JT was taken over the natural!!! Chris and myself saw this happen twice....
