A late evening on the Welsh Dee
A nice balmy evening took me to the Welsh Dee at Corwen to try my hand at late evening Sea Trout.
There was an amazing fall of BWO`s but only lasted 30 mins and in that time I netted 3 lovely Grayling in the pound and half to two pound margin on the BWO.
I saw 2 Sea Trout rise to the Olives but unfortunately were the far side of the river, where I believe 1/2 way across wading is only allowed at the moment so unfortunately for me they were out of reach.
No pics sorry I tried but camera in one hand, fish, rod and net in other didn't quite work, I got a nice shirt cuff and half a hand and half a Grayling. So much for that.
One thing is for sure, that I am convinced that fish do not feel pain, as we do at least. The largest of the Grayling had a hole in its stomach that my 2 fingers went into when lifting out of the net, I could see its egg roe sack clearly. Cormorant damage by the looks of it, but Hey! it came to the dry fly and fought like a Tiger.
Well, no Sea Trout, Steffan Jones really wet my appetite, but a lovely evening to be on the river.
