The rain we have had recently and especially today has cooled the water 
down and the fish are being caught on the top or just under the surface 
with a wide variety of lures and small flies.   Two anglers side by side, one 
fishing a blob and the other a size 20 dry and both were catching fish at the 
same time, I saw it for myself, so there is no particular pattern catching.

It has been disappointing that the good weather has not continued with
the fish all being caught on the surface and then the drop in temperature
with the wind they are down under the surface.    With such an abundance
of natural food for the fish to feed on gives the anglers more of a challenge.

with Ian Brown taking the heaviest basket with 4 fish 12.3/4 lbs.

taking the flies on the surface.   The depth the fish have been taking most of the time
depends on how strong the wind is on the surface.   A wide variety of flies have

We had a great start to this week with lovely sunny days bringing
anglers out for the first time this season.   To get some dry days
has made the fishing a real pleasure.   There have been plenty of

but today it was the small nymphs, bugs and buzzers that was doing well.
