The weather had changed last week, we went from warm and dry
to wet and cold.


It was cold in the morning and I felt a little underdressed.
Cloud cover and a strong wind made it feel chilly all day.
The rain of the past days had stirred up a lot of silt so visibility in the water was off.

The perdigon yielded some roach and also brought a trout to the net that my friends
tried to catch last week.

 

In the afternoon I went to the pub where the beer garden was empty ... too windy and
chilly for the towns folk.
I had lunch and warmed in front of the fireplace.

Late in the afternoon I scouted the stream for mayfly / trout activity and found a few
rising fish in a shallow section.

I managed to hook one nice trout but it came off.

I also spotted the big trout that had eluded me for week.
From I high bank I spotted the fish and the fish spotted me and took off.
When the fish thought the coast was clear it moved back in the open again 

probably intercepting the mayflies drifting by.

 

Now that I knew the exact location of the trout I tried to sneak up on it from
downstream, that worked.
With the mayflies about I tied on a fly that I got from my friends, a big floating mayfly.
The last obstacle between me and the trout where low hanging willow branches.

It took several casts before the fly came near or in my case next to the trout.

The trout spotted the fly beside him, turned  and gulped the fly in ... fish on.

It was vidi veni vici, very nice fat solid trout.

I noticed in the evening rising fish but with the strong wind fishing was not that

much fun anymote.
The wind kept blowing and with the cloud cover and the abcense of the sun it
was not comfy outside, time to quit.
