|Dave Wiltshire's baetis nymph|
|What greeted me as I peered over the bridge|
A little after lunch I drove back to where I started the day, the Lexa was packed away and a change of tactics but not flies was decided. I set up my Lochmor-X eight foot four weight with a furled leader incorporating a hi-viz orange butt section, I think it's easy to forget simple upstream nymphing in favour of the ever popular European leader techniques.
An aching shoulder called time on the day, I had manged three trout in an hour and wanted to finish on a high for the first trip of the season.
