Back in 2008 I had a lovely day on the river. It feels like a long time ago, so I made this video to remember it. The parts with vocals are a bit embarrasing shall we say, but anyone who’s fished for any time knows what it’s like to catch a special trout and get a bit gushy.

The season ended a few weeks ago now, so it seems like an good time to look back and remember nice days on the river in spring sunshine. Perhaps it will help make the coming season seem less far off. Or it might just make it seem an age away.
All the same, the two video clips below are from the same day of spring fishing on a favourite stretch of river back in April 2009. Scores of March browns coming off the top, plenty of rising trout. One of them even ate my deer hair sedge, and turned out to be the largest sea trout I’ve ever caught. Somewhere around 4lb I seem to remember. Slightly wobbly video, but I was combating the competing urges of returning the fish asap and getting a bit of footage of a rare moment (for me anyway).
