Fly fishing...

Hello All

My eldest son has gotten a bit fed up with pike and carp fishing and has taken up Fly fishing...

I think he has been practising his casting in the back garden

Anyhow he went to a pond  (i think) near Caenby corner and has had two successful days, the first trip out produced around a dozen trout the biggest being this 63/4 Lbs rainbow (?)



The second outing produced around eight fish this being the heavyest at 8Lbs...


He put all the fish back as you pay extra if you want to take fish away for the table but you pay before you fish, he didn't think he would catch any as these two outings are the first time he's had a go at fly fishing!!


Regards, John...

Has he considered setting up a guide service?  I'll be his first customer if I can figure out how to drive there.
