6 Brown Trout caught & released and about 20+ caught but not landed due to barbless hooks in use.
2 @ 5"
4 @ 4"
Did, briefly, have a 1.5 - 2 pound brown on for 20 seconds (last fish of the day) after landing a perfect roll cast with an added S wiggle to put some slack in the line on a dead patch of water against the bank...post 5 seconds of perfect float & WHAM! Big brown shot up & took the Parachute Adams.
Came across a dead cow in the river, let the farmer know post fishing & he said it was his neighbor's based on the colour (white) as his are red.
This river is a casting challenge. I had to pull just about every cast I know out of my repertoire including roll & dynamic rolls, water hauls, side arm casts, left hand casts, reach/mend & S casts...but managed not to lose any flies...
3 small brown trout
Rainy but a good morning on the river. Lots of small BT. No large fish spotted.
