Thornwood on the fly  

Started off tying on a white fly sort of a small silver fry imitation a few awful casts later I actually saw some improvement with getting some distance!

With no luck on the white fly I changed to a sinking bloodworm and after two casts I was into a lovely little rainbow trout which got away very quickly after a photo

Moving round the lake I tried going after some big brownies and tigers that I saw surface and they obviously new I was a novice because they made sure to nip and follow every cast but not take the bloody fly just to spite me

Changed over to a black and gold fly which was a slow sinker and slowly pulled it in and boom a lovely rainbow again probably just over a pound which was a lovely again lovely fight and jumping everywhere like the water was a bouncy castle! Another cast and again I was into another beautiful rainbow around 3lb 

Wandering around having a few more casts and losing a big fish which looking like a big tiger trout. 

But it’s all a learning curve at the end of the day but as the trout season draws closer I’m very much looking forward to getting out and casting a fly around!

But to everyone out this weekend I wish you the best of luck and hope you catch the fish of your dreams!
