Mayfly Time

River Rye mayfly

The mayfly have once again blessed us, The hatch this year has been exceptional huge dancing clouds of spinners have resulted in wonderful fishing,

The Spinners with their Long tails were everywhere massed in dancing columns rising and falling . They covered the vegetation and my car the spent bodies formed sad rafts of lifeless bodies in the eddies and washed up on the sand and gravel bars like the flotsuma and jetsom on the beach at the high tide mark.

Bankside vegetation was alive with the Hatching duns and emerging spinners all the stages of their life was there to see....

The trout were feasting on the bounty ..,. Ahh duffers fortnight who can beat it...
