Under Cover:


Blistering heat and a fierce sun might well have curtailed hatches to the witching hour.  However, on more tree lined sections, undercover trout still went about their daily business if nothing had changed.  In fact, you could argue that the unwelcome heat wave benefited many terrestrials which in turn provided lunch for our spotted residents.  Of course these fish were tucked away in the shadows, which required a fair bit of observation to locate them.  As they say “time spent watching is never wasted” and never a truer word has been spoken in such circumstances.  Paul~
