Paul Rankin wanted to get in on some winter time action this week, and we did get some fish, although the clouds made it a bit tougher.  It never ceases to amaze me how a thin cloud can shut out the lights on you.  We started out with a bang, Paul had to catch a fish on the first cast to a nice group of fish cruising through the grass.  Anyone who has spent some time on the water knows the first cast syndrome.  After Paul and I got so politely got cut off on the flat that we were fishing we decided a change in venue was in order.  We headed to another flat and smacked a fish as soon as we pulled in, then things became a tougher with more clouds and a little more wind.  We managed a couple more, but with the sun getting lower and the wind picking up we headed for home.

This time we we had some awesome fishing with pleasant winter conditions and happy fish.  Nothing makes me more happy than when a customer has paid his dues on a trip or two and then gets that day that makes it all worth it.  I lost count on the number fish caught, but I do recall watching about 5 reds eat and fight over the fly in one cast.
