Saturday 28-02-10 Fly fishing

My brother Mike came and visited us for the weekend
and he took me fly fishing for Trout.
We went fish to Jacklands near Nailsea.
We arrived in pouring rain. We bought a 2 fish ticket each and set up the kit.
It looked like the rain was in for the afternoon.
However it gradually started to brighten up and I managed to put a fly (Blue/greem Montana),
about a 3rd of the way out.
Shock horror I got a bite!!!!??????
My first trout from a Trout lake on a fly.
Soon a trout of around 1 1/2ld was on the bank and
dispatched to take home.
Haveing had some grub, the rain had stopped and the sun
came out, what a lovelt afternoon.
2 1/2 hours later and a full lap of the lake, I'm told I was getting better!!!!
Well, getting better didn't catch me any more fish.
Mike had managed a trout himself but the trout had stopped biting.
Around 2.30 I had another bite, whoppee fish on. At the same time Mike also had
a bite as did the other two fishermen on the lake.
I stopped fishing then and watched Mike who went and got another ticket.
Another two fish on the bank and we called it a day at 15.00.
Nice day thanks mike.
