Thank you to everyone who came along on Saturday night. It was good to see everyone.
The first couple of days have gone really well and I’m looking forward to the rest of the week.
The title painting for my upcoming summer exhibition at Grantown Museum July 2-10. Powering up through the water after a wee black fly, glinting in the light….. there’s a fight coming. It’s not a massive painting but it’s one that makes me smile.
There’s a nice ripple on the surface of the water. You’ve thought carefully about the fly to use, taking time to match the wee beasties on the surface. You’ve laid down your line, casting so carefully it might have been a cobweb touching the surface of the water. You slowly retrieve your line crossing the exact spot you saw that trout rise….. and absolutely nothing happens.
