The Evenings are getting shorter and the mist rolls in!

Went down to the cricket pitch at 1830 and fished along the caravan park up towards Bar Brook. Plenty of olives and sedge about and fish rising. The river was clear and the recent rain had not affected it. Started off with a JT olive and got a rise straight away but it didn't stay on. Then the next fish stayed on, a nice brown, a stockie. Changed to a Nanas fly and got another brown and lost 1. Managed to get nearly up to Bar Brook before the wading got too deep so fished back towards the car park. Changed to a 22 caenis as a lot of tiny flies about as well and raised a fish but it didn't stay on then a big rainbow hit it but was soon off. Offset the hook point as read somewhere this is effective and the next take did stay on, another good rainbow.

Noticed the temperature dropping by 2030 and turned around and looked upstream to see this.

Finished by 2045 as the fish stopped rising again and the fly had all but disappeared.
