We have two guides – one for each couple and we will mix up partners each day. You see a river? You stop and look down to see if you can see some trout.
Because I had no idea what I was looking for I tended to look elsewhere. And that wasn’t too bad at all!
Then it was time to get down to that river and get started.
First up was practising casting. On the ground. Then learning about the flies. Dry. Wet. Wooly buggers. Nymphs.
Then it was time to kit up! Waders people, WADERS. I do them well don’t you think?
Some lunch before we headed out for the afternoon. We fished the Rees River before we headed off to another creek.
Diamond Creek. And it was STUNNING. Different water. Different fish. Different conditions but still stunning.
This time I actually SAW fish. I didn’t catch them, but I saw them, and I gave it a red hot go.
Tomorrow is another day, and you never know, it could be a lucky one for me.
