Two pictures of a pair of freestone Grayling caught on the river today by my good friend Jim Curry , both caught on F fly`s imitating stoneflies emerging in the autumn sunshine on what has been a glorious Thursday , looking forward to fishing Mulbherry Whin with him on Monday in search of larger ladies ! It surprises me how few step up to dance with the girls , guess you lack the moves :)

09th September 2011

Although yesterday was very wet with repeatedly heavy showers , the river has settled down and the colour is good .

8th September 2011

Camera refused to work this morning , but if it had then the pictures would be as yesterday incessant rainfall over the last few days keeps river level high . As at 07.45 hrs rain is falling steadily and the skies are black !!! what joy .

07th September 2011

Wednesday morning and following yesterdays big lift the river has dropped overnight , however with more showers forecast for today this may well change .

15th August 2011

Monday morning and the river is in superb condition , last weeks large lift has subsided and has cleaned up the river a treat .

13th August 2011

Level has dropped as you can see and importantly the colour is good .

Glorious 12th

24 hrs later and level is dropping and importantly colour is improving another day without rain , and conditions will be ideal .

11th August 2011

As I expected a very different picture from yesterdays . The river has doubled in size overnight and its still raining !!

10th August 2011

Wednesday morning and the river remains unchanged , however heavy rain is on the cards and tomorrow's picture is far from certain as the next few days look unsettled .

08th August 2011

River level is back to normal following a lift yesterday , much needed at this time of year helping to liven things up a bit .

05th August 2011

River remains low , with no change since the last update despite the heavy showers yesterday .

22nd July 2011

Friday morning and the river has returned to normal following yesterdays lift .

21st July 2011

Thursday morning and yesterdays rainfall has risen the river once more or though it is falling , and the colour isn`t too bad and will it will suit nymphing .

20th July 2011

Wednesday morning and river level is good , currently overcast with light drizzle .

19th July 2011

Tuesday morning and river is good considering yesterdays downfall , gloomy forecast though with very heavy downfalls later , currently dry and warm .

18th July 2011

Surprisingly given the rainfall over the weekend , the river is in reasonable condition and seems to be falling , however it has been raining overnight so the picture is very much uncertain .
