The fish are starting to oblige us by looking up and the flies are starting to hatch . Hawthorn flies we’re about but the fish weren’t interested.
Even if some are very small they were fun on a three weight cane rod .
The last few days rain has turned the wild garlic green again, this bank of it was dry and wilting a week ago .
I followed a roe buck up the river today caught sight of it eventually and he saw me , my they are fast.
I love this river , so varied, rocky and fast at times then slow glides ,
The fish generally today were the smaller ones the larger ones , of which there are many were mainly laying low . I suppose I could have found some bigger fish with a nymph but I was relishing seeing rising fish .
Now I am Looking forward to many more warmer days .
