During March to April on the northern streams, the trout are dropping down the system and beginning to feed hard after the rigours of winter spawning to regain their condition. As the water temperature gradually rises, this stimulates the invertebrate life into growth and action; the river takes on a different character and a new energy.
With this in mind, John Norris has experienced a surge in sales for its extensive range of fly fishing equipment and fishing clothing. Among its big sellers are Simms and Hardy, fly fishing tackle and waders.
A spokesperson for John Norris said: "This is an important time in the year for us and everyone else who loves fishing for trout. Our fly fishing equipment and clothing is of the highest quality to ensure our customers have everything they need to make the most of the time they spend fishing.
"We stock fly fishing rods, reels and spools, flies and lines that are manufactured by brand leaders such as Hardy, Greys, Cortland and many more. Furthermore, our clothing collection includes quality brands such as Barbour, Le Chameau and Musto."
John Norris says that one of the biggest issues for fly fishermen is being warm, dry and comfortable while on the riverbanks. Its country clothing collection includes waterproof Barbour and Musto jackets that are designed to withstand the damp and cold conditions that can be a source of discomfort for those sitting by a river for long periods of time.
"What we're also extremely pleased with is the high number of pre-Christmas sales we've recorded, with a lot of people buying fishing equipment and country clothing items for their loved ones," the John Norris spokesperson said.
