June is with us... and so it really now begins. Sea trout in numbers (hopefully) moving into all our rivers and the pools we like to catch them in. Had a few hours out in the dark last night even though the river is still higher and murkier than you'd prefer, but it's June after all! Connected with a good solid slab of silver and missed two others. All the takes were gentle not hard pulls. You could feel the fish take hold of the fly then start to move. Often get these type of takes when fishing in higher water with a needle tube and intermediate tip. Fished from 11 o'clock to 2.30am.
