warm and wet I hope
WHY i will be on the Cambrian Derwent the same weeks !
I have just got rid of 10 years TROUT & SALMON mags.
You can get back dates so order some October issues afew years apart,just to get a feeling for trends.
I would go for the big fly big fish mind set, 14 ft rod ,wt 9 or 10 floater and intermediate with some fast sink tips.No need for full sunk lines, air temps should not be to cold .
Ask locals about fly patterns , I would not feel dressed without a cascade or two, gold bodied Willy Gunn tube and some of your own favs but with plenty of black,red and orange in them. Do not fish too light 20lb leaders just in case!!
Get um out,get um back in a fit state to breed.
Gordons the MAN, PM him for more detailed info.( one of the good guys )
