Llandegla 10/04/16

Postby Richie Fisher » Mon Apr 11, 2016 12:03 am

Last minute decision to fish Llandegla while there was a break in the weather. I was set up by 9.20am on a 3hr ticket.

Fishing was really difficult with sunny, clear blue skies and swirling winds which got worse as the session progressed.

My favoured spot was taken and so I had to find somewhere where I could cast the fly-line without it dying in the wind.

About 2 hrs into the session I had my first take....


There were about 4 other anglers, 3 of which were struggling like myself. The other guy had 3 fish in 4 casts and then couldn't catch a cold for the rest of his session.

I changed fly regularly without success but near the end of my session I tried a very small nymph and it was taken on the drop on my last cast of the day....


Not a red letter day, but you can't beat catching and playing fish on light tackle. :thumbsup:
