A dry evening

September 5, 2009


We decided to to spend an evening over at the lake at Syon park with the fly rods. Danny is keen to learn and a friend sorted me out with a little 8ft brook rod so we took it down to try it out. As expected his casting is still all over the place, but we found fish in one corner of the lake that was devoid of anglers to start with. I decided to have a go for them on the dry fly. It was like shooting them in a barrel. We had our limit of 4 in a few hours and Danny lost as many with his heavy handed playing technique. It’s so much fun taking trout off the top. And then seem to put more energy into their acrobatics.  I can’t really think of a better way to spend an evening. Nail a few trout, back home to eat one, then get Danny off to bed and crack open the red wine. Ahhhhhh

keep your eye on that fly
