Just to let you know, Blencarn has been restocked and officially opened today.
Might give it a week to let them settle in then give it a go, I need to get my arm pulled and it’s a bit cold on the rivers just yet.
Had a five hour C&R today at Blencarn, thick snow on Crossfell behind and a strong South Easterly.
It was like the North Sea at times.
Managed 11 before lunch then another five afterwards, so 16 to the net, dropped three and missed half a dozen takes.
All on a sort of damsel lure with a black marabou tail.
Tried a large daddy on the top as a few fish were topping, but had no effect.
Fish were in top form plenty of leaping and tail walking.
