Two trout oblige

Contributed by Mike Roden (10.04.2005)

Did not expect too much as there had been a cold spell for a few days prior to my first outing of the season. On the day it was warmer and got warmer still during the morning. Small hatch of Olives with little interest from our residents.

As I was making my way back to the car I saw two or three risers and decided to have a last ditch attempt. 10 minutes later two small but perfectly formed trout were released, after falling for a Greenwells Spider and a Snipe and Purple on top and middle droppers. So all's well that end's well. I fished upstream from Musgrave bridge.
