Article notes: Applies to fly fishing in rain-fed rivers in the UK. Introduction River trout anglers rejoice that February is a short month. Once March arrives it means only a few weeks until the river trout season is open for most of the country (unless you are lucky enough to be fishing in Wales and get an earlier start date).
