Yesterday saw me up to the jewel of the Cambrian lakes.
Bright sunshine and a steady breeze, perfect this time of year. The Cog(Claret Dun) was out and fish on it from the moment I arrived. They were not easy by no means and I having left my Gink floatant at home didn`t help, constantly having to change fly`s to keep them afloat. Had 2 in the net before noon but they changed from sipping Cog`s to splashy rises and were on the Green midge for a time only to change back on the Cog again. I ended up with 8 fish to hand but if I`d of had everyone I`d hooked stay on I would have been in the low 20s. Thank heavens they got off or I would have packed and gone home early. The challenge would have gone and its that, that ticks the boxes for me.
So loosing the fish kept me thinking "Why did they not take that properly" No answers I'm afraid, just the way it is sometimes.
Great sport, Tight lines to all my followers
