So instead of going to all these places to play tourist, I would take breaks to go do something else such as more fishing! Due to some places being more difficult to where you need a lot of luck such as in Iceland and Scotland, I decided to go to a place where I know that there would be a more proven quantity of fish there to hook and land! So here comes England again! Fish on!
The conditions, particularly the seasons, there will depend on what can be caught. So I’ve found out that Zander, Pike, and Perch are easier to catch during the summer in England while the cooler periods is when rainbow and brown trout are easier to catch. Of course, there are always exceptions but so far after fishing in the spring (caught nothing but rainbow trout), fishing in early summer (caught nothing but Zander and Pike), and now late summer produced a variety of fish this time around – rainbow trout, perch, and pike. And best of all was that I hooked and landed both a perch and pike on a fly for the first time in my life!
Of course, to be most successful, you must have some fly-fishing skill and experience. Otherwise, you might become frustrated with the whole aspect of it and give up early. I knew what I was doing but there were still times where I would screw up a long cast. At least, this time around, I didn’t get a lot of bird’s nests like the previous 2 times fishing in England but because of all the casting, my wrist was hurting by the end of the day.
