Nil return after fishing upper and lower beats for 6 hours.
River up a couple of inches from two weeks or so ago. Top beat clear, lower a little cloudy but not a problem. Air temperature down to 8C. No sign of any fish except a brown trout (almost certainly)feeding at the lip of the weir. May have been better to wait a little longer for the water to calm down more. Had a kingfisher fly-past again - Oh halcyon days! Regards and best wishes Joe Young.
Perfect water but not a salmon in sight, only eager a few brownies. However it will be a good spawning year for the peal. Saw plenty of them.
No fish, not even a tug in spite of various options being offered.
An occasional trout rising, but not to me.
A delightful and well cared for beat with easy wading as well as kingfisher, deer and guinea fowl. It's a pity there's not a bit more of it. As evening came I shared a pool on the lower beat with a salmon and about half a dozen sea trout but, predictably, to no avail. VMT for a very nice day.
Lots of small Browns, easily spooked. Lovely spot, had a most enjoyable day.
1 very small Brown
First visit. Great day, very challenging. Will certainly visit again.
1 x brown trout, about 8 inches long
