Last day's fishing for 2005

I fished the Rainbow Trout fishery in Maynooth today. It was my last chance to get out this year. The temperature was well down, rarely getting above freezing all day. We also had bright sun and no wind at all.....not good fishing conditions. I managed to winkle three fish out though, 2.5, 3, and 5 lbs so I was happy enough. I missed 3 others because my fingers were so cold I couldn't stop the fly line pulling through them!!. All fish were to skinny buzzers again.
I was in my studio on Monday and did a little work on the painting of the rock pool, If i get a chance over the weekend I may try to collect some specimens. I won't be around for the next 2 days....places to go, people to see...It's that time of year...
