The Manifold and Mayfield


Can't think of a better day. Great company and lovely rivers. Check out those shades!
Started on Mayfield where we had a couple of out of season grayling.
We moved on and had a pint at the Manifold Inn and a fly tying lesson for Jon.
He has just bought a vice and all the bits. Out came the stuff and we had a right laugh watching Jon attempt to tie his first fly. We decided a little cdc would be the ideal start. He insisted on ginger dubbing just to be different. He caught a nice little trout on it within a couple of minutes. These flies never fail!

We had six from one one small pool and could have had more!
Saw the most amazing ball of fry. Hope they were trout because there were thousands of them. Definitely not minnows, these were black.
