Now below are the wild fish which fought much harder 1lb for 1lb or perhaps ounce to ounce, all punching well above their weight. The excellent markings, vivid colours, butter yellow underside and red spots say it all really, truly beautiful trout and plenty of them. Successful flies were Daddy's, Larry's Pride, Grey Duster all with my own little bit of Magic added to them.
The most satisfaction today was achieved when I targeted a pocket of grayling that always prove impossible to catch, well for me anyway. On when the size 18 JT Olive and whammo! 2 nice grayling, the best shown below.
Best laugh today was our John making friends on the riverbank, it's been a long time since he's had a female that interested, he's not the best with cattle, in fact he's terrified. He should have felt right at home today though, she had a big shitty ass and would have done anything for a drink, which is a typical female in Ilson (Ilkeston).
