An early morning on The River Churnet produced some wonderful wild brown trout fishing. All fish came to the dries with lots of insect life on the water.
And May's and Spinners were the order of the afternoon when a few of us met up at a local reservoir under social distancing guidelines to have a play on the rainbow trout. Most of the fish fell to dry Mayfly patterns. As you can see by the photo Alan Mould was into another hard fighting fit as a fiddle rainbow trout of around 2.1/2 pound mark.
