A few hours on the upper Wylye
Fished a few hours on the upper Wylye near Warminster which was gin clear with massive beds of Rannuculus . The fishing was tough despite seeing a lot of wild Brown Trout and Grayling. I managed a few rises to dry but did not connect. All fish in the net were caught on the nymph just sub-surface. Bank fishing only made discrete accurate casting a must. First trout looked like a Smolt with an iridescent sheen and pale/translucent fins. The fish were generally palm sized but the challenge of catching made it worthwhile.
