Meander River on a bright day

Meander River in one day in February. It was very bright, no fish out in the open, so the essential cast was close to the bank around undercuts and overhanging cover.

Dave executed some good back handed roll casts to present his fly effectively. This fly was a grasshopper with bead head nymph under.

Exciting fly fishing moments

Mayfly hatches were in full swing on many highland waters when Brian and Christopher came fishing back in February.

Both enjoyed learning new loch-style skills and reading and fishing to conditions on the lakes. Well placed and timely casts paid high dividends.

Many exciting moments, including a new spinner pattern designed to have fish jump into the boat succeeded for 5 good fish in the next hour. Here’s an example of some fine browns and rainbows.
