The final Orvis skills day for 2016 was a chilly but extremely fun way to see off the years fishing. Vito and Jonny, giving great tuition and tips as ever. A bright and cold day saw the Browns we have enjoyed throughout November and December a bit less active in favour of more Rainbows.
But the fish did come to damsels and nymphs with many more bites toward the evening. We were also treated to another stunning Thornwood sunset, these have been a regular event throughout December and usually signal a burst of activity on the lakes.
Huge thanks to Vito and the Orvis students, these days have been excellent and we look forward to more of them in 2017. If you are interested in joining one of the Orvis training days please contact Vito at the London Orvis shop 0207 930 8521 for dates and availability.
Congratulations to our youngest student Frederico, who fought several fish and never gave up! Photographer Chris K Jones
