An early morning start today to catch the change of light, resulted in this nice fish on the fly.
Drifting the fly through the current onto a known lie resulted in a gentle yet powerful take that left me in no doubt I was into something special.
I fished the mini chartreuse and white flatwing on Rio Outbound short F/I with a five foot poly leader and 10 inches of Rio Flouroflex plus carbon.
Casting ‘upstream’ and mending when possible it was the first time I had fished for some time due to a lot of guiding days – thanks Alan for the opportunity and the rare photos too.
The fish measured 72 cms.
