About a week ago I took an invitation to fish a stretch of the Avon near to one of my club stretches. A have fished there before but this time is was by kind invitation of the river keeper. Through emails I knew that there had been a couple of good late evening BWO spinner falls, but the temperature had started dropping to much again in the evening so it may not happen the night I fished. It kind of did but I had to leave due to an early start the following day.
I had arrived early enough to also find out that a half decent hatch had occured the previous day of Mayflies (the big ones that normally hatch at the end of May begining of June). I had seen the odd spinner in the garden the previous days but on the Avon there were also a few about, enough to interest the fish. I had a feeling that the fish were on the spinners and luckily I still had one stuck in the waist coat foam. This resulted in a confident rise from a 3lb brown but the fish managed to mangle the fly and so a change to a roadkill wulff was required. This took another fish and rose a couple of others. The rise died about 9ish but the fish started again half an hour later but I had to leave due to an early start the following day.
