There is nothing like the anticipation of the rivers opening for coarse fishing, don't know what it is but the 16th always remains far more special than the opening of the trout season for me. I even managed to fish the evening of opening day having an unplanned escape from work early. So that was on the River Dove where I have had a few sessions over the last few weeks, my confidence was boosted on the first visit by a barbel.
Happy Birthday USA! - Have a great day everyone. Maybe celebrate with some dry fly fishing this evening?
