YOUNG Ethan Appleby’s first attempt at fly fishing could not have gone better.

The ten-year-old from Bedlington landed a good quality rainbow trout at Chatton Trout Fishery, near Alnwick, despite conditions being less than ideal.

The water had been disturbed by recent strong winds and heavy rain and so was slightly coloured.

Ethan had even tied the successful fly himself at Hirst Park Trout Ticklers fly fishing club at Ashington.
