Turned up at the lakes this afternoon and began to tackle up only to discover I had brought along 3 spools of fly line but no reel. So, began to pack the bag and go home when a fellow member (Kev) suddenly showed and happened to have spare reel and line and saved the day. He said he’d already had several fish and what flies were working. After losing a couple lightly hooked fish the line tightened up proper and I was into this lovely blue trout which weighed in at 5.5lbs. Then fished on and landed a couple more nice rainbows. So from a disastrous start it turned into an amazing couple of hours fishing.
