Ready or Not Trout Here I Come !

Over the winter months I have sat down at the vice putting my river flies and trout boxes back up on top form as most competition anglers will have been doing over the winter as I have.

I fished over in Ireland in the rivers international last june and i have never found myself wanting flies like I did in this match and found myself working hard playing catch up to my team-mate how had boxes of small flies which seemed to be doing the trick for the browns in the river Agivey.

Havering a lightweight kit pack is a good way to hold all your gear when out fishing on the rivers and by far my favourite is the G.Loomis one that I use ! its light and it hold a extremely large amounts of fishing kit when your out fishing, but most importantly its all held tightly and close to you body so there’s nothing in front of you for you line to catch in or to get in the way a you cast.

tying flies is something i do daily and i really enjoy every minute,I get many orders as the season go’s on,but this order of flies broke my heart as I handed them over.

I later found out the chap that had this collection landed many trout and grayling over the winter and has placed his second order of 120 flies for the summer so I am back on the vice with his order,i cant wait for more feed back on the summer nymphs and drys he has from me.

Its cold and it’s snowing hard,but no matter what the weather its a hard job to keep me in the house. I LOVE fishing in the snow and the cold weather it make my pink Czech nymphs really come into their own on the river . Snow makes a great back drop for your indicator to contrast against making you takes easy to see.
