The fish are being caught on the top or just under the surface with a wide variety
of dries and lures.   Most of the time the fish are taking quite slowly or just nipping
at the tails, making it quite frustrating at times for the anglers.   This is what makes
fishing so exciting there are never two days the same and each day is a new

It has again been a very mixed week of weather, but the fish are still taking 
on the top or just under the surface with dries to lures.   The feeding on top
and in the water is so plentiful that the fish are being quite fussy and you have
got to give them time to take your artificial flies.
