What a difference a day can make and a 15 degree drop in Temperature, the fish
yesterday were back on the top despite the much warmer water.   When it was so hot
the fish were mainly lying round the many springs, although they are not deep the
water was obviously cooler.

Today the wind turned warmer and the temp went up to 20 degrees giving the 
anglers a very pleasant fishing day with a ripple on the water.   There has been a 
lot of flies hatching off so a lot of small nymphs and buzzers have been doing well
along with the usual lures.   It was also good to see the Sand Martins down taking
flies off the water.  There are not so many small birds here anymore with so 
many large birds eating everything smaller.
