I wanted to try huge terrestrial pattern in O_river through my experience of being robbed indicator.
When there was no rise, I tried the beatle dropper(bh copper johns). But nothing...
I change them to huge hopper pattern with dropper(bh brassie).
There was huge splash!! I got it! Though the size was average, it was valuable one for me! Because it was first time to catch fish by hopper in O_river.
Next one was more impressive. I casted the hopper tight to the bank, and it was dropped on the water after touching the weed.
Then he attacked soon with large splash!! That was beatiful male one.
After that, I added one more fish by the same pattern. Hopper fishing was so exciting! I should have tried earlier.
In the late evening, I caught rising small one by Trico spinner. I could see the midge and was bitten by mosquito. It was wonderfuly day.
