When you are making your reservation to fish the famous river Blue (Blau), no one knows how the season will develop.  And so it happens, that you pick precisely the day, when the water is up and not blue at all, but murky and brown.

It still was a nice trip with friends, chatting, casting and cheering a the sight of the first mayflies we saw this season. Mayflies are wonderful creatures, and I am amazed time and again when a nymph rises to the surface in front of me, and within seconds transforms into a beautiful flying mayfly.

Probably because of the high water, no fish came to the surface to feast on the flies, and only Dany caught a mediumsized brown on a dark streamer. Anyway, last year was perfect, maybe nextyear again!
