Waiting for the rise at the Upper Falls Pool, river Dane. Lots of hatches this week, one or two may fly but mainly large dark olives and smaller olives. Lots of swarms of gnats just off the surface making the wildies slash and go crazy. Missing lots of takes and am wondering if the fish are trying to sink the fly when they are rising.
I'm a keen angler and whisky enthusiast. I'm lucky enough to have lived and worked on the Isle of Islay in the Scottish Hebrides, angling and dramming paradise! I fish for wild brown trout and sea trout whilst up North, back in Leek in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands I like to meet up with my pals and fish for wild brown trout, grayling and other river species in the Dane, Dove, Churnet, Manifold and Wye.
