    the first was fresh off the tide with lice but the second i think was either just holding or slowly pushing thru. i saw him jump a bit further on from where i was and caught him after about 5 casts. best thing was it was the time i took my new rod out i had them both on worm. im not too confident on a spinner but i did catch my first ever fish on a flying c a few days ago, and nope it wasnt a salmon but a brown trout at around a pound. my mate has 4 this season all on worm and his dad has had 3 on worm. it looks like a good method to me im off on the river at 4am to try my luck. its crazy because the water is perfect at the moment but nothing is coming out but you gotta have a go init. you just never know
