Eventually things have started to warm up after what all I can say has been a cold, slow, and patchy spring. The hatches have been the best I have seen for a good few years but trout seem to have been reluctant to rise despite the bounty on the surface. Fish have been in great fettle which has meant fishing earlier in the day and early evening to match their active [periods. This last bit of warm weather has really got the hatches in full swing with Hawthorns, Black Gnats, Iron Blues, Yellow Sally’s, Stoneflies, Olive Uprights and Yellow May Duns all now featuring together with a few Mayflies starting to show…..a proper smorgasbord.

It’s been a very busy Spring here at The Durham Fly Fishing Company with clients from all around the UK and International experiencing some great but challenging fishing including an 18.5 incher & 20.5 incher on following days for one client !!!!

Here’s a gallery of just some of the many clients that have been with me over the past month and enjoying the amazing Durham Fly Fishing Company experience.

From a business perspective, I’ve been recently featured in the Sunday Times magazine and Local Press and a new website is in the process of being finalised to be launched later this summer that will really show off the wonderful experiences and adventures you can have with a fly fishing rod. Additionally, under a European Export Growth programme, I’ve received support to do some work in South Africa and New Zealand later this year which will be a great opportunity and also extend the fly fishing season… exciting times.

Remember all you have to do is get in touch and let me arrange the perfect experience….it really is easy to arrange a bespoke session around your requirements for all experiences of angler.

Best wishes and I look forward to hearing from you.
