Dragonfly nymph saved the day.

Sunday was a lovely warm October day so I made a trip to my local lakes. On arrival I sat and observed the water. There was no evidence of any rising fish although there was a good hatch of dragonflies taking place. Luckily I had recently tied a few nymphs (like the one in the photo) so a good time to put them to the test. After a few cast along the reeded margins everything tightened as this cracking rainbow trout grabbed the nymph. Like the real nymphs these are big flies about 40mm long. I also tie them in green.
