SWFF Sea Trout help...
Well, yesterday was one of those days when the tide was right, we were in the right place, at the right time but no fish. After eight hours, albeit in beautiful surroundings and with great company, all four of could catch was three smaller pollack and just get the occasional follow/small tug from sea trout.
Now the weather could have been better. Little wind, started off cloudy but got sunny after a while.
Tried pink, white and olive shrimp flies. Sandeel imitasjons but nothing.
Now I've quite an extensive experience SWFF for sea trout, but such days really do make me wonder what else I can do?! In retrospect, I should have tried a long, thinner leader with a small shrimp. But didn't think of that at the time.
So what have worked for you guys in this kind of situation? What breaks 'the code' when all else fails?
