It has been another good week for fishing  and the rain and the colder weather 
has made the fish much more active.  Today the fish were being caught on the  
top and about a foot down with a wide variety of dries and lures.

It has been a very quiet week as we have not had the weather for
fishing or being outside at all in the wind and howling wind.   It was a shock
this morning when we were very white, a lovely winter wonderland,
after it was such heavy rain last night.   It is better to look out and see
what the weather is like in the morning.  A few braved the weather.

The water was frozen for a week and the lowest temperature we had was -8 degrees,
so the water is now a lot colder and the fish have slowed down as they always
do when it gets too cold.     Most anglers are catching the fish in the first 2 - 3 feet
with a extremely slow retrieve.    A few have ben caught lower, but I always say if
the fish are on the bottom here they are off as they are usually moving on the top
even in bad weather.  We also had 4 inches of snow melt on on Wednesday and
Thursday when the temperature went up.

This morning has been lovely with white frost but snow is starting to fall now
so it will probably make the ground soft again.   The water is not frozen at the
time of writing and the fish have been getting caught in the first two feet
with various flies including Ace of Spades, Ally and Bloodworm.

Today has been very calm after such horrific wind and rain yesterday.  It is
odd how fisheries have to contain any extra rainfall and rivers do not need to
and do not pay for the damage they do when they overflow because of who
controls them!!!
