Caught my biggest Wild Brown trout on such a fly. There was a time on my local river, where in August you could fish into the darkness as they do on the Eden with the Moth. 4lb 8oz followed by a 3lb fish the day after. Sadly those days are gone on my river.

Great to hear but a sad ending. Was it pollution that ended it or to many people taking fish?
