Although this stretch may appear pretty mundane but it is full of rocks and pots with the fish lying right across the stream and also tight into the bank.
The little native brownies are all dark and heavily spotted , They are all plump and well fed and everyone was returned no the worst for the experience, They rise freely and are great for sharpening ones reflexes, On here a 12 inch fish is a very good one. On the evening all the fish came to a F Fly emerger size 18. In under 3 hours I had about 25 or 30.
Before I started fishing I stood and chatted for 15 minutes with a fellow angler and club secretary this pre start conversation among other things endorsed my opinion that we believed very many anglers waste too many opportunities waiting for those perfect conditions that all to often fail to meet expectations. Last night just showed that. the river was too high and too mucky, the temp was to low and the wind was cool and downstream. But apparently for an hour or so the fish thought conditions perfect.
