Is that an AAPGAI instructor on the river?

Peter Arfield of Bakewell Fly Fishing shop into a rainbow trout on Thursday. The 2 tailed (damp) cdc fly that he caught it on is shown inset.

The intermittent and very cold gusts of wind routinely stopped casting. Occasionally you can use the wind to 'hide' a cast across the river, so as not too spook fish. But these gusts were far too vicious, and the only thing to do was pause and turn your back to it!


  1. Clothing is key to a comfortable day by the river right now...


  2. Regular Rod sent me and I'm glad he did. It's great to get the perspective from a fisherman from across the pond!
