Eagley Brook 16 Sept 14

Rubbing down and painting on instruction from my better half took care of the morning. I wanted to see a film called "Lucy" with Scarlett Johansson it did not start until 4:15 so I had 2 hours of fishing Eagley Brook which is next to the cinema complex.
Couple of fish rising, Olive dry fly got a couple of looks without anything in the net. Further up the brook, where I hooked 3 spiders in a tree last week, I could see another chap fly fishing. Decided to walk up for a chat and find out which way he was going so I could keep out of his way.

Turned out he was just about to pack in but still had time for a chat. Help me get my spiders out of the tree as well. As usual, I probably kept him talking a bit longer than he would have liked.

Anyway my "Baker" friend as soon as you left I caught a couple of small ones below and above the weir, then went to see the film. Pretty good film, hard not to be with Scarlett in it.
