Dry Flies on Chew

A visit to Chew Valley Lake on Tuesday afternoon presented the opportunity to fish using dry flies. The warm south westerly breeze provided ideal conditions and a few hours spent drifting slowly across Villice Bay to just past the cage produced 3 rainbows all around 2lb. These trout were caught sight casting using red Bobs Bits. A further 4 fish were lost and sadly none of the recently stocked larger fish made an appearance on this visit. Trout continued to show all evening until 8 o'clock when the strengthening wind put them down. I used a 9' 6" 6 weight rod with a soft forgiving action, a floating line and Kamasan 8lb mist green fly cast leader.
