    Glad you had a great day. Sounds like you started at Stonebridge at the bottom of Ballards Hill and worked up stream. The pool at Iron bridge is usually a good bet as is the pool just on from it. The bends beyond that are great fun on dries. I fished early Sunday morning from Harper's Weir down...

    Went over to the river around lunch time on Tuesday.. Nothing to dries despite small olives coming off the water. Caught 7 to small nymphs, mainly in deeper water and with gentle takes on dead drift. Great start hope to get over on sun early. I think it will have had a bit of a pounding on 2...

    Just got back from working on the river and thought I would share with you some of my findings.... Did a little kick sampling and found a range of invertebrates, not a dominance of any one but I'm not sure what that means... Phil H. is the man to ask that... Mayfly (a few different ones)...

    Hi Rich, I'm not sure I am the best to ask advice from but I can tell you what has occasionally worked for me! I use a 3 weight 6ft 6, with a 7 foot 5lb leader with a 2.4 lb tippet. I find this will turn over a fly pretty well on a roll cast which I probably use 60% of the time, and this is why...

Generally prefer to sight fish with Dries upstream, and no I,m not in my 70's.. 43 tomorrow.... so will not be...

    Popping down for an early session on Sun morning. I have been mulling over a Tenkara rod.... Not sure if a fixed line 12 foot rod is a good idea on the Tiese? Any experience on this one Carl?

    Just got back from an evenings play... Fish rising to mayfly, ignoring most other patterns. Caught three, released one, dropped two. Great couple of hours, water not bad considering the rain. Spent some time gardening the himilayan Balsam.. needs a lot more work. I was thinking of spending a day...

    I believe Mike Harding has a similar problem with leg length!! Always beware where I am wading... it may be deeper than you thought!! Great to catch up at last. I did not get any more on the way back. I would have thought that with the temperatures and lowish flow there would have been more of...

    At last the new season Hi Carlos, It may have been Mothering Sunday but I still managed to get over to beat two and had four browns and one rainbow, kept a brace. All on gold head hare's ear size 14. Did hear about 5 or 6 rises but could not convert. Probably have to wait for the Hawthorns. The...

    black death Hi C, Have been slack on reports recently... apologies. Fished on Sun morning at Harpers Weir.. above the weir I ws greeted by a relaxed cormorant making his way down towards me diving and fishing as he came... no point there. Not much moving below the weir although I released a...

    what time do you call this!! Hi Carl, have you been down south recently? Was at harpers weir on Sun morning, real early, well as early as I could risk disturbing the wife without a divorce on a sun morn... Fishing by 5.45. Not much from the weir and below. It was even cold at that time, very...

    I begin to understand... Had a great day on the Tiese today, finished with two rainbows in the bag, three browns returned, and a few missed oppotunities. Started off at the iron bridge on beat two. I had decided to fish upstream from there as I haven't explored that bit yet. I sat with a cup...
