Kingfisher, Dippers, Blackcap, Goldcrest, Sparrow Hawk, Peregrine... The day was complete before we'd even started to fish. The insect life was in abundance... A massive Grannom hatch was taking place with quite a few olives coming off too. Neil Darling was my fishing partner for the afternoon session, and he managed to bring two beautiful hard fighting rainbows to the net.
We had a total of four rainbow trout for the afternoon's session but who cares it was the first time out after lockdown with sanitizer at the ready.
