The mayfly begins!

Finally a warmer day. I don't usually choose to fish on a Sunday, but the weather was beautiful and so I decided to wander down to a quiet river with no footpaths, to fly fish.
Started off with the hawthorn - which caught. Finally, during the afternoon, saw a fish jump for a mayfly - so on went the Philip White hair-wing mayfly. Missed the first fish, but there were others that rose to the fly.
Yes, on that river the mayfly are certainly on. Hope it is the same wherever you are...
River fly diary page has the fly that started a slightly longer day than I had anticipated.
