​August 2016

We have had a couple of days of rough weather – which was perfect for our introductory phase of our course.

Plenty of time was spent in nailing our casting techniques, and we brought forward some of the sessions planned for later in the week so we
could take advantage of the good forecast for the next few days. This worked out well, with a couple of good days had out on the lower reaches
of an inflowing river.

We were lucky enough to find a couple of groups of rainbow trout in pools, which made for good fun, and we did find several browns but they were not the easiest of fish to get to eat our flies. 

On the upside, August sees fish becoming more active, with Browns feeding up after spawning, and rainbows looking to move towards river mouths to run up in October.
