Below shows him full of confidence fishing from the middle of the Derwent and he soon began to raise his tally before half time with a Ringtons Tea break with the Kelly.
By early evening, spinners were a plenty and the fish were taking no prisoners so we filled our boots in duffers paradise. White and yellow drakes caught plenty and by evening they were queuing up to join the James May fan club like the one below with one hanging out his mouth.
We stopped for evening tea with Mexican chicken wraps for supper, courtesy of my companion, before fishing into the night and my Buddy's timing was fast becoming spot on catching 5 fish from one pool while I secretly watched his technique from downstream. Finally I was really pleased with my last fish shown below, a swollen little brown with a belly full on mayfly. Needless to say more than enough fish were caught by both of us on such a classic memorable day with its sunshine, mayfly, trout, Ringtons and best of all, good company. We arrived back at our cars where my partner thanked me for a superb day spent together and no doubt over the next few days he'll realise just how good and before long he will have to admit his new found addiction.
Hang on! nearly forgot I spotted a Derby Railway angler fly fishing from a 12ft bank the pillock, he did have a long handled net but come on! I know the DRAC membership is cheap but that's no reason to act like a chav pillock with no regard for his quarry. People like him give the sport a bad name bashing and bouncing fish off the bank before throwing them 12ft back into the river to die. Please have a whip round and buy this Pratt some waders along with a few lessons on catch and release. This would be better option than me wrapping his landing net around his neck before bouncing him around the bank and throwing him 12ft into the river.
