Easter Asp

Went to "the Pond" again and although a strong SW wind in my face I did manage to catch 7 (out of 10) Asp, again 30-40cm.  My general midge emerger (shown in an earlier Asp post) has been my go to fly for the past two years when the Buzzers are hatching.  The one in the picture was the first caught and you see my ferret Diablo making a mad dash for it as I slid it on the shore.  I don't need a net when he's around.  What's funny is that the fish sees him coming!
