Tough conditions and first trout on a fly

Dave with a wild troutDave landed his first wild brown trout on a fly, vowing to throw away his lure gear and tackle his local Mitta Mitta browns with the fly.

In mid November the first mayfly hatches were just starting, delayed by the slow temperature increases this season.

The ability to connect with the fly when it’s taken in tough conditions especially yields a result. The conditions were tough on the day Dave had with us, but he stayed in touch with the fly to land this lovely brown trout.
