x 1 Sea trout 3/4 Lbs - Kept
x1 Salmon Parr (I think - it was dark) (approx. 8") Returned
Size 8 Kate McClaren took both fish at night. Had other activity/knocks on a Pilks Bumble (size 6) but was unable to land anything else.
Three trout. largest 9"
Lots of fish and following fly but no luck
Lovely beat will return for sure
Great time but blank
x 4 Sea Trout to 1 1/2 lbs all caught on a Pilks bumble all released. x2 Brown Trout also caught using a surface fly (elk hair caddis with red thorax I think). Also released
Paul Kenyon and I spotted a number a Sea Trout during the day and the lies seemed to still be full of Sea Trout at night. Lots of takes/misses and movement on the surface. Great nights fishing.
2 brownies - 1 on a black hairwing and 1 on an Alexandra.
Night fishing for sea trout so not the target species. As with the last time I fished this beat, a big otter put the wind up the ducks gone midnight and put an end to fishing form me.
Nil caught. 2 hooked and lost. Missed several on dry fly(klinks and mayfly). Most fish seemed to be hanging tight in to trees and banks. Nothing in pocket water.
2 hooked and lost.
Lower stretch of lower beat needs some of the trees trimming back as some nice looking spots are very hard to cast into. Some nice fish seen in Weir Pool and one Salmon seen jumping at top end of Weir Pool that looked to be 10lb plus. Nice evening out.
15 wild brownies in 3 hours between the 2 rods, all taken on small nymphs. Most small but a couple around 10 inches.
5 Brown trout all caught on Tan Elk Hair Caddis Dry fly.
Nil landed, some good size brownies taking, lots of fish visible.
Lower beat easy fishing, upper however is more technical.
