Kind Client feedback from a fly fishing improver

I met Howie on the Adur for the first time today. I am somewhat of a novice and Howie’s instruction and demonstration was first rate, very patient and lots of encouragement. Amazing what you can pack into three hours, time flew by and finished with time on the Adur Bass hunting. I definitely walked away a more competent caster than I arrived and look forward to putting everything in to practice. I would have no hesitation in recommending Howie to anyone who needs instruction.
Wow!  Thanks allot Adrian.

Changing seasons, flies and tactics

Took a few hours out from work this morning and headed off to my lakes before the rains arrive. Started fishing at 8am and after tying on a black tadpole pattern. Second cast I was into a good rainbow. The fish had been feasting on small, black,pond snails as on inspection the stomach was full. Within 2 hours I’d caught 4 rainbows. The biggest (pictured) was 5lbs. It pays to try different flies as the seasons and conditions change. Like the fish, we have to adapt to keep feeding and catching. I know the Tadpole fly is nothing like a snail except for the colour black but that can make all the difference. Who knows, maybe nextime green or bright pink ????

Fishy tales

No wonder this fish pulled so hard. Check out the tail fin. This rainbow took a red midge on the drop. Smack in the scissors so luckily well hooked. Also Christened my new SKB, Pitsford Pirate fly line. Must admit, so far very impressed with the line which shoots really nicely.
