Fly Fishing at Clypse Reservoir – Onchan

Whilst we were out for a walk around the Clypse and Kerrowdhoo reservoirs over the weekend I captured these guys doing a bit of fly fishing, as you can see by the image there is a definite Autumnal feeling as the fly fishing season must be coming to an end.

The Clypse Reservoir is the upper of the two reservoirs in the Groudle valley and impounds the upper reaches of the Groudle River above Onchan. It was constructed by Douglas Waterworks Company during the period 1875 to 1878 to the designs and under the supervision of Daniel Cregeen, a local engineer.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 52mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
