Rainbow on the lakes will have to do for the moment...

Sweet anticipation as I look forward to the early days of spring and the return to the rivers. Spent a few hours on one of the local lakes today just to keep my hand in. Best day of the year so far with warm sunshine on my back and light winds. Loads of early bird song, Buzzards displaying overhead and Green Woodpecker checking out its territory. Managed to bank one nice Rainbow but missed several tentative plucks. All on a black thread body buzzer, flashbou rib and section of red electric cable sleeve as the head. Retrieve just sufficient to keep me in contact with the fly. The fish came on the feed for just 30 minutes then nothing. Loads of medium sized Carp cruising but more interested in spawning than feeding.
