I thought that brown trout had a fixed season everywhere starting - midnight on the 14 th March. Some places such as Loch Leven choosing voluntarily to open later. I stand to be corrected though.
A bad days fishing is better than a good day at the office. Tight lines all.

Season for brownies just started today in Northumbria region and it was 15th March in Cumbria so it must vary a bit from region to region depending on the bylaws. check out the EA site for regional details; http://www.environme...s/fish/?lang=_e

For some unknown reason, most of the stillwaters I fish that are stocked with rainbows, insist you put brownies back! Seems daft to me - why have fish in a "put & take" lake if you can't keep them? If you do catch one it's usually by accident and if you put it back it becomes virtually uncatchable. To see these good sized browns lurking about the shallows just gets frustrating, especially for beginners! Personally, I don't even waste my time casting at them anymore.

Please send some with "pointy bits", apparently they're all the rage! :) I'm working on some special buzzers, just need a hatch to give em a try. If they work I'll send you a couple. If they don't work I'll send you half-a-dozen :D :D :D

As requested Ive found some flies with pointy bits for you, now please inform the staff when they take you out, cause they,ll have to do a risk assesment with such dangerous implements!!
