My Favourite Fly Fishing Hot Spots - Part Three and a half

          What was it I experienced in this pool (I never explained that in the last post)? It was something quite surprising. By then "The Mink" had been created and I was using that dry fly all the time as it produced so well. So I tossed it out in the middle of the pool and to my surprise a trout jumped out of the water, up in the air and took the dry fly from above. As I mostly try to set the hook to quickly I dragged the fly out of the trouts mouth. Even though it was a long time ago I'll never forget that. At that time the waterlevel was about 6 to 8 inches higher than on this picture. I think the rock in the middle of the pool was under the water line. So during almost a decade (the 80'ties) I used exclusively "The Mink" (a pattern I designed fishing this lovely stream) when fly fishing. I'll try to post more frequently in this blog in the future.

Kind Greetings,
