Late May..hatching flies..sunshine...even a salmon!

A small spate last weekend moved a few salmon, our first fish of the season is now on the books. Fly hatches are really improving. Mayflies, Black Gnats, Yellow Sallies and a variety of olives are hatching by day, with the first of the evening Caddis hatches now under way. The very best time to be trout fishing is at last upon us.

Success! A very fresh 30-inch ten-pounder. The single-hooked Black Pennell (visible in the fish's jaw) came out very easily. Measured in the net, this fish never left the water.
