A Cold Start to the Year

I popped out to the local canal on Saturday 9th’s afternoon for about an hour and it was too cold to stay for long. I didn’t catch anything or see any fish, and not that many people to be honest. It was more of an exercise in testing newly tied flies which I will post as well soon.

Casting is quite hard there due to the width of the tow path, but with the snow loading the bushes down it was a lot easier. One tree was crossing the path so I didn’t bother to go past that and so worked a 300 yard stretch of water to no avail.

The good news though was that the flies worked quite well although 1 was hard to cast.
