~The dreaded curse......bright sun~

Testing Conditions:

Following one of the coldest Winters on record for the last 30 years, who could be blamed for enjoying some welcome Spring sunshine? However, such conditions aren't conducive to chasing wild river trout in my neck of the woods. A recent day with wall to wall sunshine saw me scratching about on the river. Seemingly, all the trout were cowering beneath undercut banks. That said the warmth spurred a few midge into life and a handful of trout risked cloudless skies to take advantage. Size 16-20 black Klinkhamers proved their undoing and it was actually pleasing to be casting at a few risers.
