Tuesday 10th April 2012

Tuesday morning and following yesterdays rain , the river is up by around 12" the colour is fair at present and fishable with fly , although given more heavy rain this could easily change .
The forecast for the week is poor so this may be the best picture this week .
The season so far has been dominated by dry weather and low water , fish have been feeding increasingly in line with increasing fly activity and fish returns have reflected this .
I would add that I have not introduced any fish this season to date , contrary to anything you may have read elsewhere , a controversial subject and as individuals we will all have are own thoughts on the subject .
