Home Beat…. Brown Trout…

It is true…..  No blog posts for ages, sorry but we have been so stupidly busy, which is great….  With mobile phone technology as it is with social media we have been using Twitter and Facebook as it is so quick…

Mrs A made me take the afternoon off and we had just the most brilliant afternoon in the Wise Man, amazing food and a splash of wine and then a wonder along our “Home Beat” as slowly as possible….

I cannot tell you how chuffed I am… Spotted this bad boy sipping down BWO’s between the weed at “split path pool” you know its a good fish when its nose comes up to eat the fly followed by its dorsal, then the tail….   Second cast after what seemed forever sneaking up on it…  On a tiny little spinner pattern….  www.chalkstreamflyfishing.co.uk

Three pound Grayling

The big Grayling on the Frome this winter have been tough…..  But those who have put in a little time have been rewarded with some truly great fish, we have had a number of Grayling to well over that magical three pound mark from this part of the world… Including this great fish for our friend Rich Hart , carefully guided by Alex Jardine….
