|The River Wye around Builth Wells|
|The Grannom sporadically hatching in 'clouds'|
|The Grannom Caddis Fly (Brachycentrus subnubilis)|
Last weekend on the River Wye there were times when the fish were very actively taking the flies either on the surface or just below, then without reason they would just stop feeding off the surface even though there were still many flies hatching.
|This bruiser of a Chub gently sipped down my dry Grannom pattern and put a severe bend in my #3|
Although Grannom carry on hatching after this peak period I have found that the trout lose interest when they only emerge sparsely and quickly move on to something else. The reality is that unless you are able to fish the rivers daily it is hard to get out more than a couple of times during the peak period and therefore lessons are that much more difficult to learn.
