Trouting about

After our sea fishing exploits Danny was keen to get out again so the descision was made to go fly fishing. Danny has trouble casting a normal rod and though he tries, the sight of him flinging £350 worth of my carbon around wildly, fills me with fear, so I am usually the caster and he brings the fly back. He is very good at this. He has the most eratic retrieve you have ever seen, which the fish find hard to resist. The day was tricky though, the trout were not shy in leaping clear of the water, though after nearly exhausing my fly box and the light fading we were staring at a blank, as it seemed was eveyone else on the lake. It was time to unleash the viva, a fly that has got me out of trouble on more than one occasion and this time was no different. A very welcome last gasp rainbow hit the net.

hmmmm, what fly next?

hmmmm, what fly next?
