Nothing quite like a bit of piking when the pumpkins come out. Spent day guesting on Avon & Tribs on the Frome. A lot of fish about but only two coming to hand or net with Red and I catching a fish a piece. Mine just about 5lb but his probably just shy of double figures. I did connect with two other fish, one a particularly good fish which I had on for quite some time before it shook the hook. Sometimes I think the teeth just get caught up on the fly and that is why its not a solid hook up. Great day in lovely setting.

Spent final weekend of Salmon season on Teifi hosted by Red and Dave. Fished a couple of beats mainly using Mepps spinners. No adult Salmon or Sea Trout but some nice little wild Brownies and the odd Salmon parr barely larger than the lure. Felt I learnt a new trade of fishing the Mepps upstream and across pretty much tempting any trout that gave itself away on the surface. I just find it unbelievable how you can cover every inch of a pool and then minutes after turning to give up a resident double figure Salmon will launch itself clear of the water just to say goodbye. Ho-hum better luck next year!
