    Default Re: Winter River Fly Fishing for Coarse Fish

    The rivers near here are highest I've seen them this year, but with only a few days left of the season I popped out to give it a shot.

    This tributary on the left is often a dry ditch

    And there's a weir with a 4ft drop under here

    I did manage to find a few spots with slow flow or back eddies.

    Persistence paid off. This Roach was the only one I managed to bank, but I had a couple come off while playing them (lots of snags and debris), the bigger of which would definitely have been over the pound mark.

    Hi Jerry,

    I have just dropped by to say I envy your enthusiasm. I had a look at the Harpers and the Nene today as I came down the A605 from Peterborough, and the state of both were shocking. As an aside I wonder what others use to post photos, I can use me Google drive but I hate that it only shows a clickable link. Anyways, I will need to post a few photos, but I did not fancy wetting the line in the Harpers today. It was literally in the fields. I am not even sure even the slacks would have had any fish, it was absolutely bombing through. We are talking about a brook which is less than half the size of your Ousel through Leighton Buzzard. It must have been up by 2-3m. We should get you out on the canal at your end. It produced a few nice perch on the last few days of 2017. I wonder if the boat life picks up as soon as the sun is out, which can bump the fishing on the head.
    Keep us posted!

    Cheers,

    Pete
