Spring trout

Finally found some time to do a first trout fishing session this spring.

In these fast running mountain streams, trouts hold deep and will only take heavily weighted nymphs fished near the bottom.

Maybe not my favorite style of fishing (french nymphing) but it does produce trout and it takes a lot of practice to perfect the style. I'll try to upload a short film later. I tried to show how the nymphs are controlled with the long sensitive rod (no fish were caught during the filming though). Sometimes it's the only way to make a trout bite in this cold, fast running spring water with the snow still melting.

Was great to be out on the river again fishing with a good old friend. Good fishing everyone!

Always nice to spend some time with friend(s) on the water. Especially after a long winter.
