Dry fly sport in March

Today I made the short journey from my home to Garnffrwd fishery, I’m fortunate to have this superb fishery almost on my doorstep which has made this stunning lake my home water. Arriving at the water around 9am with my trusty side kick  Ian Thomas tackling up with an aqualux intermediate and a 6wt floating line a cats whisker and team of buzzers to start. Fishing for an hour saw ian taking 2 fish on the pull with his white bead chain lure, and no trout to the net  for me we retired to the warmth of the cafe for a chat to Jamie and a breakfast at the cafe.

After fulling up on fuel and coffee it was back out to the lake which was warming up nicely, I decided to switch to dry flies after watching lots of fish sipping down small grey midges, I chose my ever faithfull pheasant tail emerger which takes dozens of fish during the course of the year. A few casts later and my first fish was in the net, the fishing wasn’t easy and we had to work hard I took one on an apps bloodworm before changing to a size 14 grey duster.

All the remaining fish we took fell to the grey duster a superb pattern that can be used  to imitate a multitude of patterns we finished on 10 fish for Ian and 12 for me a brilliant early season session on the dry fly .
