Its been a while since i have been fishing since i have had a massive chest infection but now that im all ok :) i decided to get a few hours on the river Taff yesterday morning ( 10/04/2011 ) and it was a scorture. As soon as we turned up on the river you could see the ubundance of midges on the water aswell as olives, dunns and the odd mayfly or two and the fish were rising quite frequently for them.
But after a while it was seeminng to be impossible to catch any fish with the normal tecniques ie klink & dink, cdc & elk etc so after passing all them flies across a little food lane on the far bank infront of numerouse fish it was clear to me that there was only one solution a size 18 Griffith Gnat and in my first cast i placed the fly perfectly up against the wall and BAMB my first fish in 2 weeks a nice 8/9 inch wild brown trout :) so i deceided after that fish to move up river as the first fish made quite a comosion on the water, it didnt take long for my second ( 2 casts to be exact ;) ) in the fast water and this time it was another 8/9 inch monster wild brown trout. They may be small but a lot of fun :D
Small but big in fight, plus so very beautiful.
A safe release for both :)
