It’s hard to believe, but we’re into the last few weeks of the brown trout season – and in many ways it feels like the season has slipped away from us this last while – but to make the most of your time remaining on the rivers and loughs, we’ve got some tips and advice for you for September.

Friend of the show, Keith McDonnell, from Impact Fly Fishing, joins us with some expert late season advice and discusses his preference for when he fishes dries v streamers.

Plus Keith also tells us about a recent trip to Iceland that saw him land three double-figure sea trout.
