Conditions Fish Caught in the Past Week Fish Caught this Season so far River Height:
This was a disappointing week for my Fishers. We had a rise in water from the snow melt up the Valley for most of the week. The river shot up too 5 feet with a slight colour. The river then started dropping on Thursday.
On Friday I had Mike McBain & John Young fishing over at Middle Blackhall. We discussed tactics over a cup of tea. We decided we should set up two rods, a floating line with a super fast sink tip and A full intermediate on the other rod, both with my favourite fly, a Dee monkey.
After a few quick pointers Mike & I headed up steam to the kelpie. I sent John down to start in Malt steep about 30 minutes later John was in to a sparking 9lb springer using a floating line, a sink tip & my favourite the monkey, it did the trick. Well done to that man.
Next week I hope we get better sport.
