Wild Brownie saves the day on Bristol Frome
Family commitments meant a quick morning trip to the Bristol Frome. Unfortunately it had been -3C overnight so despite the sunshine it was going take a while for the day to warm. The fishing was quiet right up until the late morning on my return to the car when I hooked and netted a nice Brownie on a weighted nymph which I had left to drift in a deeper pool. It was a wonderful morning nevertheless with the bare tree canopy giving way to shafts of sunlight lighting up drifts of Wood Anemones. Some nice birdsong with fleeting glimpses of Dipper, Kingfisher, Green and Great Spotted Woodpecker. First day in my new Greys GRXi waders which were incredibly comfortable if not a bit cold. The day went on to be glorious, perhaps the warmest of the year so far reaching double figures in the sunshine!
