i decided to fish the upper neaudd as its the last weekend of the season up there this weekend and im missing the small streams and dry fly fishing. I took Sid and my good friend Mario. It would be my second time up there this season and i didnt have much luck the first time but everyone else did on my flies >:(
we got to the gates of the resoviour at 9:00am and after we opened them it was a picture perfect moment so mario posed for the camera
after we had to go through the 2 gates unlock/lock all the locks and gates we finally arived to the resoviour and there was fish rising everywhere in the calm water so all 3 of us were eager to get kitted up asap and get on the water and catch some fish. I was set up on a 9ft 6/7# with a 15ft leader with one dropper to start off with.
As soon as we hit the water what all we could see was a LOT of small fish about 1/4 maybe 1/2lb scitting off from the shallows into deeper water and i was kicking myself as i should have known better :mad: so straight away i moved from that spot and went to deeper water. I was casting short csts t first incase some fish were close in like in the shallow water earlier on but nothing so i extended my line nd still nothing. This went on for about 4 hours and about 20 changes of flies so i waited for a bit nd had a rest. Then i noticed sid on the other side hooking inot some fish but loosing them a good few times and nearly throwing his rod in the resoviour jumping up and down in anger hahahaha :whistle: and moved on over to show him how it was done :P
As i met him he was red faced and very andry " saying them F#####g fish they are doing my f#####g head in im gonna f#####g kill them all " ( i wasnt laughing honstestly :whistle: ) i changed my fly to a single bibio and after a few short casts i was into my first fish of the day. A wild resoviour brown trout. A few casts and a few steps aside in different places i was into a few more too and sid just walked off :D :D
After that i met up with a guy which wasnt with us to see if he had his lisence ( which he did) and he had snapped off on a few rocks behind him so i gave him one of my bibios as i had a few spare amungst other flies :thumbs: and a few flies after he was into one of the very few rainbows which are in the resoviour :D
and then he was off after telling me the rugby scores which i wasnt too happy with as i had it recorded.
But it was a brilliant day and here are a few pictures for you all
