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.
