April’s poor weather came as a shock after March. However this failed to dampen our spirits or that of our clients and fishing has been good, in fact very good!
Most of the April’s action centered on fishing the lakes, many people trying fly fishing for the first time with great success. Others took the opportunity for an early season refresher or to further their existing skills.
We enjoyed great midge hatches, providing superb action to buzzers and suggestive nymph patterns like diawl bachs, ptns, hares ear and crunchers. As the month progressed olive hatches increased and hawthorns have started to figure strongly, bringing fun action at the surface with dry flies. Expect this to continue through early May.
Meantime while you’re not hitting the water, enjoy the images of just a few people who have, successfully with MFF during April!
