River Croal with DJB 17 Jul 15

Contacted Dave Bendle and arranged to meet this morning and fish the Croal. Dave calls himself a newcomer to fly fishing, well he gave me  lesson on catching on the Croal. I have never had much luck on the Croal it looks good but I never seem to catch many fish and today was no exception.
 We started off slow both on nymph but soon Dave was into a fish, not a sniff for me.

 A few fish rising so I switched to dry fly same as nymph not a touch.
 Dave meanwhile was catching one or two.
 Here he is catching another.

 Up above the broken weir I had high hopes but no fish.




 Dave changed to dry fly.

   and he is into a fish again.

A complete blank as far as the fish go for me but it was good to see a different method from how I normally fish. 

Thanks for the company it was a pleasure to be out with you Dave, hopefully I will do better when we do it again sometime.
