Nice bag of trout from Chalk Springs fishery

Chauks trout 016

I had a free day today and as the fridge required topping up with trout I decided to visit Chalk Springs fishery. On arrival I was pleasantly  surprised to find they have dropped their prices and now a 4 fish ticket costs £36. However they are now stocking with smaller fish. The morning started with thick cloud overhead and managed to bag 3 nice rainbows by lunch. Then bright sun in the afternoon and the trout became shy to the fly. I did eventually find a lucky fly (a large Minky) and nice 3.5lb brown trout engulfed it right under the rod then tore off across the lake and put up a fine scrap.
