They’re here….

I was out with Francisco and Beltran yesterday. Beltran had fly fished twice before on a stocked lake a little while ago and Francisco had never held a fly rod before. We worked on casting on our little trout lake and later hit the river. The rain we have had recently had taken the river up a little and there was a chance something migratory might have headed up our way. The top of Beat 6 is a good spot to look as there is a good holding area for anything looking to head upstream if there isn’t quite enough water. The guys put what we had practiced into good effect and Beltran shouted as he lifted his 7wt fly rod into a fish.  The bend in the rod told me this was no trout but it sadly came off after a couple of minutes. The excitement from all of us must have been a picture and we carried on fishing til 9.30pm. I don’t know who suggested we go in but it was pretty dark. As we fished the last pool I managed to get my net caught on a stray piece of barbed wire and had to go back with wire cutters to get it out today after finishing work!

 We have been really busy with newcomers learning to fly fish, the slightly more experienced looking for some new tips or those looking to hit the river and let us help them catch a few. Just a few below…
