Fishing with friends

Spending time on the water with good friends is something I really enjoy. These sorts of days aren’t heavy on fishing, well, not always but are about good company. Sometimes good food, more often than not unhealthy and of course a few fish.

I met someone at the hotel the other day who had been staying and doing some fishing. I’d been washed off the river (again) for a day’s guiding but thought I’d rig up a rod for salmon just in case. I asked David what he had planned and he was heading off home at lunchtime so I asked if he fancied tagging along. He did and we hit where I thought we might have our best chance. When we got to the river we both knew it was against us as the fish would struggle to see our fly but we didn’t care. We had a great few hours that was interspersed with sharing fishing stories. I really enjoyed it.

I also recently met up with Jim for a fish. The weather couldn’t be more different with no clouds and bright sunshine. The river we were fishing still had some height and was pushing a little and Jim opted (correctly so) to fish nymphs. I hadn’t seen much by way of rising fish on the Taw due to the weather but I just wanted to catch a fish on a dry so stuck with it. We strolled up the river together with me fishing any slower spots that might have a chance of a riser. This plan worked and I managed to have a few and missed a few while the nymph reigned supreme. It was a great day I thoroughly enjoyed.

Keep an eye out for Eat, Sleep, Fish next week. We’ll be publishing it then and hope you’ll enjoy it. As ever, if you do, please pass it on to your fishing friends!
