A miserable, grey and rainy afternoon, Ian & Ben (Father and Son) try their hand at river fly fishing
With nothing to entice fish to the surface the guys nymph with my favourite #18 RNPTN’s. 10 footers and long leaders the order of the day. Ben with his first ever grayling plucked from marginal cover.
Grayling do have a lovely smile…
The occasional unsettling interruption… typically dads gone off on one while mum trundles behind looking after the troublesome kids.
Fishing the pushing water and harsh currents well within the reach of the rods, they’re constantly plucking fish from the margins… the fish were mind bogglingly fast and feisty this afternoon
Look dad I’ve caught a big fish… ner ner!
You call that a big fish do ya?… how about the rudder on this then son (Dad knows best)
Thanks guys, a sublime afternoon with heaps of reward… look forward to the next outing
