Superb dry fly sport last week , not only were there the plethora of midge, small rape beetles, daddies and olives were also thrown into the mix.
The lake olive fishing was particularly fascinating as the fog and easterly wind combination meant ideal hatch conditions.
Many hare's ear patterns were effective but those of olive hare's ear outperformed the rest.
The mist had trout rising all day and the evening sport was every bit as good as the best of the morning.
A variety of tactics were successful-twitched and pulled dries,drifted wets and suspended pupae.This will be some of the best angling of the year and expect hawthorns very shortly!
