Well here we are a month in, and we have had some fun and games, and good fish to boot!
My diary updates begin from my close season ramblings and sightings, which – on certain rivers – looked positive, with fish spawning and even feeding a little too.

The big story from my last trip was about the fish which took off like a rocket and nearly got tethered, once again I had to take off my bottom half and wade into a river only 6 celcius, (it does not take long for the pain to turn to numbness in water this temp). By the time we both managed to get out, I was shaking & shivering but we were both ok. My feet finally came back to me in the car on the journey home!
Here are a few pictures of some from my last sessions;
