One week prior to GFF Summit...

One week prior to the GFF Summit and here are the front runners for todays salt result.
The smallest - Yes, smallest - 52cm :o
I did see two jump, a lot smaller, but didn't get it!
Seven sea trout caught in total all displaying fine colours.
So many trout seen jumping, lost in the fight and swimming past under my nose.
This was another day I'll never forget and a typical Autumn day at a place that does me proud every September and October.
The largest I have taken in the salt was 83cm, ironically 3 years ago today!

Not bad for 4 hours.

One that swam past three times...

The colour golden...

A silver un...

Cows and trout...

Hi there Distant Streams....

Hi there Distant Streams.

Certainly not bad in just four hours. Those are really, really nice sea trout, and I have to admit I also enjoyed the curious herd of cows. Always watch your back cast :D

May I be so bold as to ask what kind of fly or flies these shiny critters preferred?

And since I am unable to attend the summit, I wish you all a happy gathering and "knaeck og braeck".
I will be there in spirit.

Flies...

Hi,

Flies I use for Autmun are as natural as possible No flash colours just simple brown shrimps tied on a size 10. I find the smaller the fly the better.
Autumn fish can be very picky and follow the fly right up to the rod tip many times.
Yesterday was no exception.

Cows...Yep. They just love to browse and chew.

In my opinion, smaller flies - bigger fish. By the way did I mention that i took the fish on class #4 rod? I always use a light weight rod especially in Autumn.

We'll keep you posted.
