Just updated the River fly diary page - at last. Sorry too busy fishing and allotmenting!
A little luckier than the 10" rainbow which, whilst being netted by David on the Derbyshire Wye, was attacked by a fish somewhat larger than it. Thus becoming (in the words of Peter Arfield) an ex-rainbow. Now was it a pike that took this fish? David thought it was a very large brown. There are pike in the Derwent, so what is to stop them heading up into the Wye? Any thoughts?
