And back again for another head clearing session.
Cowslip and windflowers are abundant and fish are slowly returning to their summer hideouts.
Some spots are still desolate though, according to a fellow syndicate member it will take a couple of weeks more before we see more fish in the open. 


I wanted to check up on my chub hotspot and for a brief moment conditions where perfect as several chub had taken up position in the shallows behind our clubhouse.
Dry fly was the way to go and so I tossed a small f-fly over the chubs and voila the first chub on the season incidentally also the first fish on a dry fly this season was fact.
The wind picked up rather quickly and surface feeding was cancelled.

I went to another more sheltered stream, could not spot many fish there.
One spot did have fish and allthough it was not easy I managed several dace and roach on the nymph.

At the end of the day I went to an open spot out in the fields that could be good for surface feeding dace.
I found them as they where lazily cruising in the surface picking up food items.
My casting with the wind was sloppy though and I totally messed up a good chance by striking too early ... oh well there will be more days.
