As I’ve only had a few short hours free due to family and work commitments I’ve been using the time at the vice relaxing and thinking about my favourite time of the year, early season trout fishing!
The March browns and brook-dun hatches! This can be amazing so u need to be prepared I’ve started with a pattern I like to use fishing the slower pools with the French leader and as a dropper when the fish becomes active on the March brown and brook-duns. It’s a great crossover pattern that works great throughout the year in many different sizes!
