Not been active on the blog lately, very busy time, lots of fly dressing gigs. Nothing like the start to the new season on Bassenthwaite Lake, yesterday was no exception the anticipation was almost unbearable. Armed with small Rapala lures (ignore small lues at your peril on this Lake) and a couple of tube flies attached to the line three above. Our intrepid anglers set sail. Slow at first but after a short while in the cold northerly breeze it was game on. A small 3lb fish came to the lure to the delight of my boat partner, Anne, she was delighted especially at having to hold the fish for a photo. In summary, we finished with 7 fish, biggest 10lbs, 4 on the lure and three on the trolled fly. Pictures of the 10lb fish will be posted soon.
