They weigh in at just over a gram or so and are a dream to fish with, they set off a lovely wake behind them as they move along the surface. Spotting fish was easy, getting them to take was not. I had one small 'un of about a pound, that flipped back while I fumbled for the camera.
Moved along and found two fish tight to the bank, good chunky fish these. Lure way past them and inch slowly up nothing, no interest. Sat there scratching my head, decided to crank it back a little faster then wallop,a good violent take. Then his nibs shot clear of the water, head shaking and freedom beckoned. Bollocks. This repeated itself on two more occasions creep up on some fish finally get them to take, shoot clear of the water head shaking, doing the tail walk fandango and gone. Like I say it drove me bonkers, good fun but bonkers. Mr. Trout was not finished with me yet.
Bloody frustrating to loose a couple of good fish, but I'll be back out soon for another go. Very exciting way to fish, knocks spots off waiting for a rod tip to move.
