What is very interested to me is there is a trout I have had a few shots at over the 5 years I have watched it and it has had my pants down on every occasion bar one where I struck too early when it hammered my klinkhammer ..
This fish is the most nervous and cautious I have ever come across, my main problem being chub that sit above and below it, soon as I get near they bolt and this trout immediately knows something is wrong and ghosts back 20 yards to his safety hole ..
So today I saw it again for the first time this year, and to my amazement it was chasing minnows around the shallows !!
Call me a twat but I must take him on the dry fly, the hatches are really shit here and hawthorns is probably my only chance..
I have decided to make this fish my target and there is one thing I know I will be in for a some serious scrap as it will bolt for its hole which is a under a trolley !!
It looks around 3lb plus, it has a head of a horse, it back end is slightly skinny but it's looks as rough as a bears arse and reminds me under fed gypsy as hard as fuck.. I bet it's has snapped some casual floats boys clean of the years..
I hope to hold this fish ..
