Spring has sprung?

We noticed for the first time that the swallows were back at home today, primroses are in the hedgerows, the large dark olives seem to be more abundant and the trout are more in their rightful feeding spots. Perhaps this is the first time so far this season that things feel like they are getting there. I even taught in a fleece and T shirt today.

Temperatures are set to rise a little and this should give the season the kick start it really needs so the trout better watch out!  I have a day off tomorrow and after seeing the anglers at the hotel I plan to head out for some trouting myself.

The new lake is now full, although it still looks a bit “just finshed” and it needs to settle. But it is great to be teaching on there as it is a great size and I am really pleased with how it has turned out. As it is not a public fishery I have planned it so that not only are there¬† lots of areas to fish from but also areas that will be useful to teach casts, especially single handed spey casting. The fish are on order and will be in soon, so then it will really come to life. It really is a great addition to what we are trying to do and offers a great spot for anglers when the river is unfishable.
