Soon after taking up my position a splashy rise only a short cast above me indicated my first chance at success. It took a few casts to get the Fast Water Dun, a favourite fly pattern for the evening fishing with it being great representation of either a mayfly dun or a caddis, into the bubble line before the feisty little brown took it with gusto. After lifting the rod with maybe a little too much force (I sometimes get a little trigger happy with the first few of the session!) I found with some surprise a solid weight on the rod. These little river browns always give a great showing in the fast current on the light rods. After a short but nonetheless spectacular battle the chunky pounder was slid into my waiting hand. After quickly admiring the superb colouration and condition of the trout, (this being the rule rather than the exception with the Mersey browns in recent times), he was slid back into the cool clear river water and freed.
