Sunday 3rd October

We spent a lovely week with family and friends on the Llyn peninsular last week, glorious weather too but no fishing! I did check-out the local tackle shop in Abersoch to find out if there were any marks for saltwater flyfishing for future reference. I was told that the weekend was probably the last tide when the bass would be in due to a high tide and lower water temperatures so the sandeels would be disappearing. I have acquired some tying materials for tying pike and saltwater patterns so I will be tying some up during the winter. Anyway we got home on Sunday afternoon so Mrs Baslowfisher suggested that as I had been a good boy why don't I go fishing. A quick call to Derek to find out how last week had been and he had had some good sessions with a black beetle. So off I toddled off down to the works and decided on the willow pool but unfortunately someone had got there first so I went upstream. I got in just above the sycamore and cast my black beetle to a few rises and soon had a solid take from a decent brown. There were quite a few fish showing but I could not make out to what, there was nothing definite about. So I persisted with the beetle and soon took another brown followed by a blue. Things were looking promising! I worked my way slowly upstream the sunshine alternating showers. I ended up taking another couple of browns and blues taking my tally to 7 fish in a couple of hours. The rain came and the rises more or less finished, as I wandered back to the car I contemplated whether it would be the last outing of the trout season or could I manage another 1..............
