Crane Flies

36 knotted pheasant legs later - 6 Craneflies and a funny twitch. All worthwhile...yeah right!

Beautiful scenery, but where are all the fish?!!

Shifty fish, they have already been tickled.

Slow down and have a good look!

Spring Weather - 4 Seasons in 1 Day.

Trout Tucker.

Large river stones make an excellent wind break for these delicate insects.

Deep water, a weighty trout and a small net = "The run-around."

On a double nymph rig this fish took the top fly - my swimming mayfly pattern.

Enjoying the muggy spring light northerly rain, heaps of insects around, a few sporadic hatches of mayflies and stoneflies. The swimming mayfly pattern is proving to be unstoppable. All fish I have caught have been taken on it. I will post the tying instructions soon as I have now photographed the tying steps. I have a new mayfly dryfly which worked well today which I will share soon too. Great to be on the water again with me old mate Jack.
