Spring Still Hasn't Sprung !!

Today was a rather cool day on the Irfon with Chuck from San Francisco, there was a very strong cold wind with plenty of rain to damper spirits, but the brown trout didn’t seem to mind too much, it seemed a little strange that in the un seasonal weather there was quite a good hatch of LDO’s and the odd March Brown but next to nothing coming up for them, so nymphs it was, the first run we tried was a little concerning for me as not a touch not quite how you want to start a guided day, but onwards and upwards the next run looked lovely if  a little shallow in the low water conditions but he trout were there and feeling hungry Chuck landed 4-5 and had another 3 close to the net only to come off so things were looking up one nice thing was all the fish were very acrobatic as soon as the hook was set the fish would come flying out of the water. 150 more words
