Small rivers at this time of year come into their own and nature is in full swing delivering food to the trout in every way.   Hatches every day and terrestrial events can be hourly.  Its a bit like shooting fish in a barrel, all too easy.  

Bang a hopper along a steep bank brings up a fish, run a grey dun down a bubble line and bring up a fish. Drift a small nymph over a drop off area in a pool and hook a fish. See beetles on the wing and match the event and hook a fish.  Its all too easy. 

It does not happen like this for me you say? Did you pick up on the word terrestrial.  You can fill a fly box easily with them. Grasshoppers, ants, beetles, spiders and cicadas all in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes.  Too many choices I'm going to just fish a Royal Wulff #12.  OK!   It all happening get on the Rubicon and fish as summer only lasts so long.

  • Best Practice Tip:   Stop fishing and look around carefully and then correct.
