Fishing on a Tributary of the Eden

Our Assistant Store Manager, Mark Bendle, was out trout stalking last Thursday on one of the Eden's many tributaries and we thought we would share a few images from the day along with details of what tackle Mark was using.  The average size of the brown trout were 3/4lb, taking the Gold Bead Hairs Ear and Micro Caddis, whilst using the New Zealand Duo Style Dry Fly as the indicator on the water surface. The tippet can be tied either over the hook or through the eye of your Dry with a dropper of various lengths with your nymph on the end.  Mark was using a Greys Streamflex 7ft 6 fly rod and all the fish he caught were at rod length out whilst using homemade neoprene knee pads so he could get right down and not spook the fish.
