As the last fishing trip of 2015 went pretty well on that river at the border
I tried the same spot in the new year as well hoping for good results.
The first trip however did not bring any fish to the net as the only few
hits came from small perch that fell of the hook prematurely.

I tried a second time under quite miserable conditions namely cold and
wet weather when not even the perch wanted to chase any flies.
Out of pure desperation I tied on a small size 16 nymph and fished the
shallow end of the mill pool with a very light tippet.

I found it odd that I got stuck so often untill I finally realized that it 
where actually bites ... I felt kind of stupid :-)
One I noticed that the Dace where actively feeding even in the miserable
weather I did quite well, not big fish but at least the first silver fish of the year.
