A friend and myself spend the morning fishing one of our streams. Instead of the usual photos I though I would share a small movie of the day. The quality is pretty crap as it was shot on my little point and shoot camera, but I though it might be worth sharing.
We left early morning to a beautiful sunrise. The air temperature was a cool 12C and the water temperature a cooler 10C. The fishing started of slow with only one fish in the first hour or so. It soon picked up and we started to land more rainbows. It was one of those weird off days for me where nothing seems to go right. First I couldn't get my leader to turn over, and then I has a serious case of bad knots that kept on breaking off. Eventually I changed my complete leader setup and things improved until I kept getting stuck in trees and rocks, making bad casts and spending half the time undoing tangles. I did manage to land a few fish though. All fish apart from one that we caught fell to nymphs. We were really hoping for one of those magical days that we get on our streams where you don't even have to bother tying on a nymph, but it was not meant to be.
It was a fun day out though and with only 9 more days remaining of the river season we made the best of it.
