It was an excellent start to October yesterday with a cold morning and lovely sunny day and the same today. With cooler clear water the fish are still taking a wide variety of flies from dries
to bright sparkly lures. Most of the fish are still taking quite gently so anglers still have to slow
down for them to take, but of course with the cold nights it will not be long before this will
change as the water gets colder and there is not just as much natural feeding.
