Fishing wasn't easy to start with but we managed to pick a few off with sedge patterns and Klinkhammers, all small, wild and beautifully formed. Although nothing was rising, today was a case of covering all the likely places fan casting to draw them out. Small flies didn't stand a chance today with little rising so the big guns came out - size 12's.
Nearing the lower end of the stretch I tried my Elk Hair Sedge which got nailed instantly by this fine Wilde below. The river came alive this end which is unusual in my experience of Wolfscotedale and the size also got bigger, the last couple of pools quickly bringing around 15 fish including this fish below. On the whole another most excellent days fishing resulting in around 30 fish with no stockies to be seen.
