First fly fishing session in may with dry flies at our home stream. No raising trouts yet, but 2 graylings hooked in the main current.
Water level of the Wupper River was way too low with 40cm. Partly sunny, mostly overcast sky at around 18°C.

The font is the “DIN Bold” Type:
The word YARD contains the meaning of the unit of length which is common in the fly fishing world, in one hand and in the other it implicates a metapher of outdoor/outside, like the backyard or similar.
The DIN Bold Type is underlining these character points:

Nymphs with Strike Indicator: A Goldhead Caddys Nymph in Size 12 was the Champ of the day.
Tom and me, we hooked several Graylings around midday at water temperature about 8° Celsius. Mostly Cloudy but dry.
There’s a reason for the saying “Montana, The Last Best Place.” Whether it’s true or not, Montana is surely a special place. For 6 days we would be fly fishing in remote locations along the expansive wilderness found in Northwest Montana. The fishing was awesome, and the backdrop for it all second to none. To top it all off we legally could fish for bull trout. We had an amazing time and got some beautiful shots which we are stoked to share with everyone. Enjoy!

This spot is called “Wipperkotten” and its located in the Bergisch Land between Solingen and Leichlingen in the middle of my 30km fly fishing track:
The Wipperkotten in the Bergisch Land was built as a grindery in about 1605 and it is the last existing twin building of formerly 26 grinding sheds at the lower river Wupper.
It was private initiative which brought this grindery plant with its water weir under historical protection in 1955. Like in former times, two undershot waterwheels are spinning between both of these historical buildings. The land bound house is still used as grindery.
