Well at the moment the large dark olives are on the trout menu because that’s all that’s bloody hatching at the moment with these wild winds and mad cold weather that has stuck with us. Please give us a break and move on winter weather, its spring for god sake!
The hatches have been starting around half 12 and going on for an hour to an hour and half at most, so be ready because it’s over before you now it!
These are patterns that ive been using for the last few weeks on the river and they have been very successful.
Olive dun below.
Check out a few trout that have been enticed by these patterns in the last few weeks.
