Trout on the Fly Part Four.

 Today was the fifth time I've been out Trout fishing and it is getting more and more enjoyable every time I go and the weather was perfect for some fly chucking so here is how the day's fishing went.

    1. Cheers Richard, they never get tiring the fight is always great fun.

      In regards to the invite, if your ever in the south-eastern corner of our lovely country armed with a rod, in sure I could put you on a few spots with enormous potential, a chance of a 3lb + Trout is very real.



End of Season Glut.

   For the final fews days I had many plans in my head but the weather made things very difficult to set plans in stone. In the end I did a ...
