0900 am 25th March 2010 OPENING DAY

This is it !!! and the good news is that as at this time the river is at the level shown just above the stepping stones and falling , heavy rain overnight has at this time had no effect and the water clarity is good .
No wind at present and the temp a comfortable 8 degrees , so conditions favourable for those lucky enough to have the day free after the long cold winter . A time to try out that new rod or waders ! and seek that first Brown of the new season . All fish have overwintered in the river as no fish have been introduced to date , this is a management strategy to ascertain how stocks hold up over the difficult winter months .
A reminder that I will be at Barden to chat to those who wish and I happy to hold a casting clinic for those who may want to learn or understand the cast , or any other technical problem you maybe struggling with .
The tug is the drug !!
