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.

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.
