The river is currently steady following another small lift of water , slightly up on yesterday at this time , but colour is the same ( strong tea no milk ) . I caught seven fish yesterday and lost a very good fish over 2lb . All of them fell to either a size 14 jig hooked tungsten pheasant tail (point fly) and a pea green gold ribbed czech nymph (middle dropper ) fished czech style , no fish took the top dropper a sedge pupae . Fished 6` out from the bank in 3` of water , approx 50 yd pocket . I had fished up this piece of water with spiders and small nymph to no avail , so rigged up as mentioned and fished the same piece of water again , and caught straight away .
