Incredible day fishing

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

One of the best days fishing in my life! The black, high and cold waters of the San were not troubled by the slightest breeze. That’s why a 3 hour hatch of pale wateries was so successful and kept the attention of every single fish. I didn’t believe what I had seen. Thousands of grayling rising, like on a June evening sedge hatch. I had about 17 fish in 2,5 hours, so not enormous quantity, but each fish was around 40 cm in perfect condition and the unique colours. All of them took a single plume CDC dun dressed on hook 18 or 20.

Late for spawning

I’ve spent few days trying to picture trout spawning, but looks like I was late. Anyway, the enormous numbers of spawning nests I found is breathtakning. I found them not only on smaller streams, but mainly – in the San itself. Every place that looked suitable for spawning was indeed a spawning nest. Oh this river is rich….

Water got lower, the weather doesn’t invite us to fish – cold, windy, rainy. This is so during about a week – it cannot last for ever. Trout starts spawning, pity the conditions are awfull and can’t get any reasonable pictures.
