~A promising summer evening on the Eden~
Blue Winged Olives in full swing
Despite the recent changeable weather, in between floods the Eden has produced some magical hatches of Blue Winged Olives. Thankfully, this is one species that tends to be quite reliable, when evening after evening of sport can be expected. Just the other night, whilst a hatch of BW-Os wasn't the best, everything came good with a spinner fall in the gathering gloom. I was treated to a good hour of excellent dry fly fishing. Checking my watch, it was 11.22pm when I left the river, so don't be in too much of a hurry to get home, otherwise you chance missing some of the season's high-points.
