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.
Frantisek Hanak needs no introduction many of you will have no doubt used at one time or another a 'Hanak' product. Arguably the Czech fishing team are one of, if not the best fishing team in the world.
With the River Masters competition cancelled and The Veterans accommodation booked and paid for it would have been a real shame to let it go to waste. Graham Lumsdon and Del Spry my team mates for this event were more than happy to .........
I am as guilty as the next man! Yes guilty, I turn up at the same river walk to the same runs and catch the same fish. The same goes for many of us who are short on time and keen to get that fishing fix!
For reasons I won’t go into here I have found myself in Leeds for the week. I am busy but a small window on the Sunday presented itself and with lots of options in the area it was a tough choice on where to go.
Where to start? Scott Nellins put a huge amount of effort into organising a pegged river competition on the River Tees. Many have shouted about it and a lot of three-man teams verbally committed to fish the match.
The fishery was once a roaring success but had been a little neglected over the previous few years. David though knew the potential of the fishery and has worked incredibly hard to bring it up to what it is today.
