It has been another week of mixed weather and changeable temperatures
giving the anglers some good sport with a wide variety of dries, buzzers,
 diawl bach and many colourful variations of lures.    The fish have been mainly 
taking on the top or just under the surface, but taking it slow when they take
an interest as many are turning away when there is such an abundance of natural
life on the top and in the water for them to feed on.
