Tuesday saw me up at 0430hrs and out on the boat on Llangorse lake. I love this place. Mid-week its usually pretty quiet. With the pike hopefully just starting to stuff themselves after breeding in the shallows.
With the 9ft #10 orvis helios and outbound short sink tip strung up, the echo was telling me 11deg C. By the time the fish started to show interest, the temp had reached 13deg C with a high sun (burned my hand). From 1100hrs – 1600hrs I think i caught 10 jacks, best was probably 7lb.
Built a new fly ushing EP fibres, needs a good brushing after a few fish. Must rememebr to put a comb in the fly box.
