    This week has been a difficult week due to low water and sunny spells.

    We took the opportunity to focus on the maintenance on both beats strimming the banks and painting the hut at Middle Blackhall. 

    The river is up a few inches today so fingers crossed this rise pulls in a few fish for the next guests!

    This week was testing conditions. With low & clear water we could see fish holding in certain pools, but the fish werent taking any notice.  

    On Monday evening I managed to landed a fresh 4lb grilse from the Cottage Run using a size 14 Silver stoat.

    The Second half of the week the river has risen.

    Fingers crossed for the following week.

    This week was a very frustrating week. 

    Seeing fish but couldn’t get a pull. I managed to catch a 3lb sea trout from the Spout using very light tackle & size 16 stoat on Tuesday.

    On Thursday we had a little rise of about 5 inch  throughout the day. 

    Bill Hannan caught a fresh grilse 4lb from Glisters on a size 14 stoats tail. 

    On Friday Bob Kenyon landed a lovely  4lb grilse from the Cottage Run on a size 14 Red Francis.
