|A few inches further forward and into the abyss...|
This bit of river drew my attention last week as there's a fallen tree creating a narrow channel between the banks. The water glides slowly just after this obstruction and the fish leisurely loiter just below the surface to prey on whatever passes by them
Like a sushi bar in reverse.
|The light's fading - just one more cast, honest...|
After I'd managed to hone my casting (several lost flies later in the trees behind me) I managed to find a rhythm and catch a fish! Followed by two more. All about the same size (about 1lb - 1.5lb). All nice Brown Trout with the most intense colours, golden brown with black, brown and bright red/rust spots. Beautiful.
|Shaky camera with all the excitement.|
|Off you go, my plate next time when you're bigger|
I was so caught up enjoying myself I was late putting the chickens to bed. Tut, tut.
More fishin' trips shortly (after my op). Just had some more chicks too! More to follow...
