It’s been a long winter, no denying that. I was washed off on opening day, and haven’t had a chance to fish since. However, the days are drawing out, the weather is improving and the environment is finally showing signs of spring.
With this slight improvement in conditions, I managed to grab a short session with a pal and I finally opened my 2018 season. Here’s how that day panned out.
Bridge hopping is a valuable activity for a number of reasons. It feeds the imagination, for places you have never fished. You might even spot a fish or two, if you’re really lucky. In our case, it helped us to establish conditions as we moved upstream higher into the catchment. Third bridge lucky, we found some water that we figured might give us half a chance.
So, without laying down an over indulgent fishing story for you all, here are some pictures from the session.
So there we go, the first of 2018 in the bag! It's great to be back on the rivers, and I hope you're all fitting in some sessions when conditions allow.
