Small Streams, Cane rods and pretty fish


How can i add much to these photos.   This was my Saturday . I had intended to fish elsewhere but a farmer working noisily , together with cattle in the stream put me of and I gravitated back to one of my favourites .  Despite the very low conditions and very spooky trout I managed a few 


Its been a while since I had taken the cane rod out for an outing .  Forgotten how nice it feels with a fish on the end. 



Pretty fish on a pretty stream , simple pleasures 


Its normally 6 inches deeper than this . On a small stream thats a lot...I spooked a lot more than I landed ... a hell of a lot more .


 First time out for the new reel .  It balances the cane very nicely ...perfectly you could say 



 Something very soothing about moving water....

Delightful post Andy. Hopefully Storm Ellen dumped a bit of water up your way to add the river levels.

An outstanding catch fishing with a vintage fly rod and reel. What weight fly rod and what is the name of the reel? Beautiful area you were fishing thanks for sharing

Bill the rod is a 6ft 3wt cane built for me about 8 or 9 years ago by Chas Burns in York. The reel is a recent purchase its a Hardy model Perfect . Its a small heavy reel that balance the cane , its all a bit retro.
