I arrived at the river at 9:40 and started fishing at 9:55 Sunday morning.
The river water looked good colour as well as its level, a wee bit lower than the last week.
I thought like " Mmmm, it's a top condition, isn't it! " and expected a good fishing day.
It was a quiet start getting no bite out of a couple of key spots in the first 20mins and I felt like fish were not moving yet.
After 20mins from the start, the first fish put a good bend in my rod.
A good strong fish took a nymph.
I had uncased my Scott G2 905/4 for the first time since Christmas holiday to make a better presentation for when I got a dry action later on the day.
Fish just started moving after I caught the first one. I kept hooking up a fish every 10mins.
Nice 3.5lb jack, 21inches.
And then, hooked up one more jack from the same spot.
After all, 7 fish in the first two hours and move on to the next stretch.
Another nice jack 23inches.
I thought I had caught this fish before, actually it was two weeks ago. He stayed exactly the same spot in the run but was stronger to fight with than the last time and had gained his weight a little bit more.
Good to know you were still well there!
Actually this part of the river has been like my own " Catch & Release" stretch. I've been catching many of the same browns twice or even three times and haven't seen any other fisherman at all.
That's amazing, just the South thing!
Fish, fish, fish!!
And around 3PM, a big one put a full bend in my Scott G2.
An awesome jack with an awesome colour!
This jack weighed 5.5lb, 24inches in length.
What a great fishing day!
My Scott G2 has always been my lucky rod, not much used in this season though...
It was really nice seeing you!
Autumn is runnning away so fast. Everytime I come back here, the river is changing its colour.
But it is so nice to see beautiful autumn colour fish in autumn scenes.
Two more over 3lb strong hens at the end of the day.
The river was different this week. No fish took dry fly action but quite good for nymphing throughout the day.
I caught 15 fish all together, dropped just one fish. Although my catching rate is usually 70%, it was like 93% today. Wow, well done for myself!
Time flies, only one month to end my first season in the South.
What kind of drama is going to happen in the next month?
