Itchen for Trout & Salmon
Autumn has arrived, and Paul is in Hampshire fishing the famous River Itchen with former fly fishing world champion, Tony Paulson. They are fishing on the Lower Itchen fishery and the river is in great condition and perfect for some dry fly fishing. Tony lends Paul a Red Tag fly which works well for both Trout and Grayling and it isn't long before Paul finds some feeding fish. Missing the first fish, he makes no mistake second time and lands a lovely Brown Trout. Paul then meets up with retiring Riverkeeper, Dick Houghton who has worked on the river for nearly 30 years. In part 2, Paul returns to Scotland to fish the back end Salmon run on the River Tweed at Boleside meeting up with Head Ghilie, Nigel Fell. They start in the boat but with no luck in the morning, move down and wade fish the Heart Pool. Paul changes fly to a bigger Tube fly and as the afternoon comes to an end, finally hooks into a strong Autumn Salmon.
