The river was high so I took a trip toward the headwaters.
I found a pool where some small browns were taking emerging baetis in a slick,
a dozen or so fish rising freely and gently.
My offering of a #18 reversed parachute Greenwells yielded five in ten minutes.
I then changed to a #20 revpara Rusty emerger with a tiny slip of bronze mallard
for a hint of wing, tied by my neighbour and friend at Small Fly Funk, Andy Baird,
another pretty brown.
I had a dozen for the evening and returned to my open fire.
