River Dora Baltea (Italy) fly fishing
">
">
The rings here looked different then the ones of the previous pool. They were perfectly round and a small bubble of air often lingered in the mid of the ring for a few seconds. The fishes were undoubtly feeding on winged insect. I mounted a matching dry fly and at the first cast I could see the trout rising from the bottom, directly to my imitation. I could observe it in slow motion as she approached and opened the mouth .. strike .. no.. I was too fast and the fish bit only the surface. In spite of the first (half) success and the many fish rising, it was damned difficult now to convince them to take the fly again.
