I woke up at 3.30 am today. Drove to a river. Fished all day, and ate lunch standing up in the river. Drove back. Arrived home at 8.30 pm.
I had a blast.
The sun felt warmer today, and there were more bugs emerging, which is good for the trout and is a clear sign that spring is arriving.
I today hooked only little fish, and landed nine of them. Below, is one. It fought valiantly, using the currents to try and get away. A joy to net and then behold.
I still cannot believe that some steel, thread, and feathers tied together by hand can fool a trout. Pretty amazing.
