Going to need it... Tree trout great sport today as the bank is no longer there..Enjoy & tight lines!
Thanks pal had to leave early missed the late rise disagreement with a guy using a spinner.. Of course I have nothing close to that but will check it out.. I'm hoping for a full day on the Lough Saturday.. Beautiful fly...In a day or two when the dark muddy colour is gone and the water is carrying a copper tinge to it ( I call it Beery colour ) try a wet fly with either gold or orange in it. Those two colours work well down here when the river is fining down after a flood.
Heres a great fly for it.

I took the 3wg today the salmon do run up there I will take the 7wt next trip.. Thanks pal..I hate streamer fishing in rivers - unless there's a chance of a salmon. I'd rather wait for the river to drop, which is what I'm doing - with increasing frustration.
If you have to do it, use a #7 weight, at least you won't struggle to cast a big chunky lure. And you might get a salmon
I have to be careful now as the river will have salmon and sea trout in it and balifds are always on it.. You need special licence for salmon and sea trout.. And I don't have one as brown trout are free to fish for..Minimum 6lb full-fat nylon then. Proper murky, 8lb.
