Post Birthday Fishing.Posted: 27th May 2016 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
I spent the day at Garnffrwd with my good friend Clive Wednesday, the conditions were perfect overcast and not to hot superb hatches throughout the day. Olives ,Caenis , Sedges and Damsels all featured in the days action. The first hour or two was a little hard but the action soon exploded after a hardy breakfast in the lodge, fishing the section of the lake known as the medow presenting a size 14 yellow owl shuttlecock on a 9ft tapered leader with 2ft of riverge 0.14 tippet and my hew hardy shadow 9ft 5#, ( Many thanks mum & dad for the birthday present). The fish started smashing the cdc and it wasn’t long before I had six fish to the net, including some of the nicest fin perfect brown trout I have seen in a while .
A move along the bank a few yards I stitched to a midge tip and blue flash damsel fished along the reeds where the naturals were crawling up the foliage to hatch saw more furious action two more fish before stopping for lunch.
After a short break I moved to the second finger where the hatching caenis proved challenging to say the least, on with a size 20 Grey duster soon put me amongst the quality fish with three more netted before moving to the first finger to finish of the day.
One more fell to the duster before all went quiet the naturals stopped hatching and the fish stopped rising.
Switching to two claret buzzers on the midge tip took my final fish of the day a fisty rainbow on the top dropper.
