Welcome to my Fishing blog. This is a record of my fishing activity. Most of the subject will be based on Fly Fishing for coarse, sea and game fish. The aim is to record every trip I go on whether I blank it or not. I can then build a record that will help me improve and also remind me later on. There is information on tackle, fly tying and equipement and materials and anything else I think may be useful.

Session #27 Chalk Springs - New PB
I treated myself to a session of 4 fish at Chalk Springs in Arundel. I have been here before and love the very clear waters and also the fact its only 10 miles from home.
I turned up at about 9am. The fish weren't the easiest to catch but that all adds to the fun. I hooked into a feisty brown trout first up which weighed 2lb 10oz:
Then my first Blue Trout ever. I have tried many time at this place but never even a close nibble until today... This one weighed 2lb 4oz:
In the afternoon I hooked into a very large fish but the line snapped as I was readying for netting. I was most annoyed, or words to that effect...
I decided to try a hand tied small dog biscuit look a like. I moved to a new spot and saw a large brown trout swimming around. After about 10 minutes I put the fly just in front of it and saw the mouth open and close around the fly. Before it could be spat out I pulled hard and hooked in. It was a great fight and proved even more so when I found that the fly was barbless!! This one weighed in at 8lb 2oz!!!
After that one I needed just one more and caught a 2lb 2oz Rainbow before 3PM.
This was my shortest but most successful day here ever. I was on a high.
