This is part one of a two part video about fishing the Broadlands Grayling Classic. In the first part I show some of our two very different days practice and discuss tackle, tactics and hopefully show you a little bit of the river.
Duo fishing might well be frowned upon by many as not fishing the dry fly nor the nymph correctly. Technically they would be correct but, I have fished this method for years and have caught an awful lot of fish doing so.
I was supposed to fish with Ronnie Christie but he cried off and Steve kindly agreed to step in. In this video I take to Pitsford Water in Northamptonshire with an old team mate and good pal Steve Cullen.
I really am a lucky man, I have some great pals that can get me to places that I can only dream of. Sorry for the vagueness of this video but I do not wish to get my pal into trouble hence the cloak and dagger.
hope the title is not too misleading, I don't often use the term Euro Nymphing to me its all just Nymphing. Czech, French, Spanish and a host of other names it all comes down to tight line Nymphing. You may call it what you please.
Long before I had any interest in running water this is where I spent many an hour often in conditions not as nice as this. I had not visited Rutland Water for more than 15 months and could hardly sleep the night before in anticipation.
The Manningford stretch of the Hampshire Avon runs right past the very popular Manningford Trout Fishery. https://www.manningfordtroutfishery.c... The Salisbury & District Club ticket allows you to fish a fair old stretch of this beat.
I do count myself fortunate in these unprecedented times that I am lucky enough to get out and still do what I love. I am also really lucky to have numerous good friends that invite me to their venues to have a go.
There is no doubt the last seven week have been tough for the majority of folks. I count myself lucky that my family still have two wages coming in and we have managed not to kill each other during the close confinement.
Okey dokey, part two! You have messed around with the phone camera but you are still not getting the detail that you desire. You have to up your game, get serious and dig deep, into your pockets that is.
