The fourth Sunday of November promises another good day in the calendar.
Duncton Mill is a fantastic day out. Every time we get to visit this fishery, we have a great day. There are some big lakes with deep holes, with buzzers and wet flies being the choice flies of the day. Big bright lures don’t normally prove successful here, and the fish fight well.
The ultimate test of any fly is—does it attract the attention of the fish? Thus we wet our lines once a month to test the flies we tie. If tying your first fly is a milestone event for you, with the joy and triumph that success brings you, imagine how it feels when you catch your first fish on a fly you had tied. We visit local fisheries, with the occasional trip to more distant ones; sometimes for friendly competitions...or for the fishing...but all to have a good time.
